    I've installed ISPConfig on CentOS 6.3 64-bit.

    I've configured DNS-zone via my admin account. Let's say domain.tld
    When I operate as a client (created via admin or via reseller) I want to create new websites in subdomain of the DNS-zone.

    Sites => Add New Website doesn't make automatic changes to dns-zone files i /var/named
    When I cat /var/named/pri.domain.tld there is no info about subdomain.domain.tld as I expect it to be.

    I don't want to create different subzone for every subdomain to work make DNS working.

    Please help me what I'm doing wrong?

    Off course as a website is a apache vhost and the files of the apache server are in /etc/apache2/ or /etc/httpd depending on your linux distribution.

    Then add a wildcard subdomain in the dns manager.

    Subdomain wildcard won't resolve my problem. I want my reseller to create subdomains of this domain but with separate vhosts and quotas.

    When I was using cPanel as a reseller than the software created automaticaly both vhost config and proper DNS-zone update in one step.
    Users don't know how to modify DNS records so I don't want them to do it.

    Where should I add that wildcard? To reseller or admin or user.
    Should reseller have DNS zone entry or DNS zone should be on admin level only?

    Add the wildcard to the dns record. A wildcard is a '*' A record.

    Thats up to you. You can either manage all dns records as admin or you can let your resellers manage the dns records.
