Hello, Do you have root access of your VPS or Dedicated Server or are you using a Reseller Account?
If you are a reseller then just follow te method that told you by Sabir or contact to your web hosting provider or system administrator.
or if you are root owner then you can easily remove the DNS entry or record for any account or domain easily with just a single command.

  1. First of all open the SSH access terminal, (you can use putty or terminal from WHM).
  2. now just fire this command, /scripts/killdns
  3. and you will see a message on terminal screen that you have removed DNS entry or record of that domain successfully from the server.

If you need any other help you can post new question.

Hello Sandy, please go to your WHM
Search for “DNS Zone Settings” and click on that.
now find that domain you want to remove DNS records from your WHM server open thatsDNS settings Records.
Now remove all the fields records.
Change the Record Types to “Select” option.
and Save!
Thats it, you have removed that domain’s DNS reords from the server.

I am also facing the same issue for a domain name.

An account of this domain name is already created in your WHM therefore you are getting this issue, just go to your whm and terminate that account and re-create account again.
if you have already terminated that account but keep the DNS settings on your server then just follow the Sabir or Zain Hosting’s answer.
