DNS settings for resellers

    When a reseller creates a hosting account under his/her resellers management, Name Servers of the new domains of the end users are created as the default name servers of the hosting provider.
    So the reseller should check the newly created domains all time and needs to change the name servers at DNS records via Plesk.
    This does not create a technical problem, since domains work anyway. But if the end user login to Plesk and check the DNS of his/her domain he see the name servers of the hosting provider. Thats the problem, it breaks anonymity of the resellers.
    There must be a setting at reseller management part, so the new domains which are created under resellers should have their own (of reseller) name servers settings by default.

    Setup of DNS zones for newly added domains is automated: When you add a new domain name to control panel, a zone file is automatically generated for it in accordance with the server-wide DNS zone template and registered in the name server's database, and name server is instructed to act as a primary (master) DNS server for the zone.
    So, there is only one server-wide DNS template and there is no special DNS template for resellers.

    we need a support of custom nameservers for resellers. Otherwise resellers have to work with our nameservers in the template. its a problem.
