Сreate DNS-zone

Before delegating the desired domain to our authoritative NS servers, create a DNS-zone in your personal account. To do this, click "Add zone" button in the "DNS" section.

Enter the name of your domain zone — it must match the domain you want to manage. Click "Create".

The following dialog box will be opened:

The data in this box will be applied for the SOA-record of this zone:

  • domain name – the name of the zone;
  • negative TTL – the time in seconds for storage of knowledge that something does not exist, cannot, or does not give an answer. For example, if a recursive DNS-server is requested for an A-record for the test.example.com, but this record is not registered on authoritative servers, then the server during the period specified in the Negative TTL field will respond to requests that this A-record doesn't exist, even if the record is added immediately after its absence is detected;
  • primary NS – the primary NS server that stores the domain zone file with information about all resource records;
  • contact – the field in which you can specify an administrator's email address who is responsible for managing this zone.

Delete DNS-zone 

Go to the "All zones" section, open the menu of the desired DNS zone and select "Delete zone". Confirm the deletion in the pop-up window.
