Adding custom user DNS zone templates

Nathan Lierbo shared this idea 9 years ago

I am aware that we are currently able to edit the stock zone templates. However, is there yet a way to add new custom DNS zone templates? If not, is there an active feature request for this?

In my case, some users are using Postini spam filtering and thus require custom MX records. Currently, I need to set these up manually per domain. It is time-consuming and would be great if I could simply create a custom template for Postini users.

You can duplicate the zone templates if you find the files in the appropriate folder and those you will have created will then show in the listing of zone templates. The catch is that WHM chooses only one by default. I don't know what is the criteria for this choice, but it would be nice to actually have a list of the zone templates upon account creation to be able to set those correctly right away.

Since I don't know if that's exactly what you wanted with that feature request, I'll start my own and invite everyone who wants that feature to either join in here or on mine here : (right now in moderation, but should be approved soon)
