306: How to Enable or Disable Advanced DNS Editor in WHM

When managing your cpanels as a reseller, you may or may not want to allow the individual cpanel accounts to have access to the Advanced DNS Zone Editor.

The Basic DNS Zone editor allows the user to choose between two record types, the A record and the CNAME record. Users of the basic editor also cannot view or modify any of the default records that are generated during cpanel account creation.

The Advanced DNS Zone Editor allows the users to choose from three record types, A records, CNAME records, and TXT records. It also allows the viewing, editing, and deltion of the default records that are generated during the cpanel’s creation.

Whatever you decide, using the reseller account, you are able to enable or disable this option for all cpanels. Follow along below as we demonstrate how to do that within your WebHost Manger (WHM).
