Creating DNS Zones and Records

Jun 05, 2015

To create DNS subzones

DNS zones are created when customers are initially provisioned with DNS services. Additional zones are created when domains are added to the DNS service. Customers with DNS Service Administrator permissions can create DNS subzones to which they can also add DNS records.

  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Services > DNS > DNS Records.
  2. Under Zone Management, enter the name of the new subzone and then select the zone to which it belongs.
  3. Click New Sub-Zone. When the DSN page refreshes, the new subzone appears under DNS Filter, in the Zone drop-down box.

To create DNS records

When you create a DNS record, only the Time to Live (TTL) setting can be modified. To change other record settings, you must first deprovision the record. When you have finished making changes, you provision the record again.

  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Services > DNS > DNS Records.
  2. Under DNS Filter, perform the following actions:
    1. In Zone, select the DNS zone to which you want to add the new record.
    2. In Type, select the type of DNS record you want to create.
  3. Under DNS Management, click New DNS Entry. The DNS Record screen appears.
  4. Enter the record details and then click Provision to create the record.
