How to Resolve Error: "You must have the zoneedit feature to take this action”

Updated on Oct 26, 2022

The problem typically occurs when you modify the configuration for a few of the capabilities of the cPanel service we provide to all of our customers. Of course, the absence of the Advanced DNS Zone Editor capability is the root of this problem. But our service already offers support for such capability.


This article is mainly for the Cloud VPS and Dedicated Servers clients because the Advanced DNS Zone Editor feature may not be enabled for them, especially for customers that are managing their own cPanel packages.

Source of the Issue
