    Where to find this?

    So I'm wondering where I could go about finding the files for the DNS records in cPanel? Any help is appreciated!

    That's not in cPanel, is it?

    In the "Domains" section on your domain with the name servers, click on the "Advanced DNS Zone Editor" to see the A records.

    DNS for your site

    1) Select your site from the drop down menu
    2) Click on DNS Manager
    3) Continue to DNS Manager
    4) Edit the record according to your needs and choose Save

    It was very helpful!

    The OP wanted to find the files for the DNS records. Not the DNS records in WHM.

    Thanks Sam for your help but are there any other files that are edited? I added a new line to that file but the DNS zone did not work.

    Do it from within cPanel, not editing the files directly. I'm sure there's a way to do it by manually editing the files, but I've never been able to get it to work correctly. You can check this post at cpanel's forums for some recommendations for another lost soul trying to do this manually! There are a couple of extra steps (incrementing the serial number, using "touch", etc.

    It is easy to find. Go to cpanel and find your require icon.

    I don't need to edit this through cPanel and looking for the files I need to directly edit so I can create a script.

    No reason I can think of that it wouldn't work. Did you restart named?

    See some points below,

    - After editing the zone record , make sure to change the serial key
    - Run the command " rndc reload "

    Hello,
    I would actually advise you not edit the files directly via script as if done improperly, you can break a lot of things, your best bet is to use the cPanel/WHM API. The cPanel API actually contains functions for adding, removing and editing DNS Zones (Safely). The cPanel API can be found here (I pointed this link to the DNS Portion to make it easier on you)

    cPanel API -> DNS
