Subdomains as a separate account using Power DNS with DNSSEC

As a cPanel user, I would like to be able to use subdomains with DNSSEC so that if I have to restore an account, it does not affect the main domain and its' daily backup.


I have used subdomains as separate accounts using BIND which I have been doing for years now.

This is a shortcoming with using PowerDNS as it will not allow the subdomain to properly work with DNSSEC.

Plus Auto SSL does not work with this above.

I use this way to build websites for people so that if I have to restore an account it doesn't affect the main domain account and is on its own account for a daily backup.

What I have been doing for years is this.

Then just fill out the rest of the fields like normal then click on create.

Then wait for 1 to 5 minutes for Auto SSL give an SSL Certificate

Then done.

I would like to see this possible with Power DNS with DNSSEC and with Auto SSL.
