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:
- Select a domain name from the Choose Zones to Delete menu.
- Click Delete.
- 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.
