 (WHM >> Home >> DNS Functions >> Perform a DNS Cleanup)


This function is useful if your BIND or PowerDNS configuration file is corrupt, or if duplicate nameserver configuration files cause DNS problems for your server.


  • Do not modify nameserver configuration files while this process runs.
  • Only run this process (or the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/cleandns script) on servers that use BIND or PowerDNS nameservers. Do not run this process on servers that use any other nameserver (for example, MyDNS and NSD).
