Management

Rage4 For cPanel allows you to easily synchronize domains and their DNS records on your cPanel server with Rage4 server.

It is crucial to understand that Rage4 For cPanel synchronizes Rage4 with cPanel, not cPanel with Rage4. Due to that, there are two limitations of synchronization process:
1. DNS zone removed in the Rage4 panel will not be removed from cPanel.
2. Advanced settings set up in Rage4 will be overwritten during the synchronization.

DNS Zone

New DNS zone created at WHM is immediately synchronized with Rage4.

Let's add an exemplary zone and assign it to one of our users.
