Valid for versions 82 through the latest version

This feature allows you to delete DNS zones from your server. This is useful, for example, if you no longer host a domain on your server or another DNS server is authoritative for the domain.

  • DNS zones that reside on other Write-only DNS servers in a DNS cluster will not appear in this interface.
  • If you delete a DNS zone, the cPanel user must configure that domain’s email addresses to use the local mail exchanger. They can configure this setting in cPanel’s Email Routing interface (cPanel » Home » Email » Email Routing).

Delete one zone

To delete a single DNS zone, perform the following steps:

  1. Select a domain name from the Choose Zones to Delete menu.
  2. Click Delete.
  3. Click Delete on the next interface to confirm that you wish to delete the selected zone.

Delete multiple zones

To select multiple zones, use command-click in macOS® or control-click in Windows® to select the zones from the menu.

If the zones that you wish to delete are together in the list, click the first desired zone and then shift-click the last zone to select all of the zones in between.
