About the service

The DNS service is used to create, update and delete DNS records of your domain. To manage your domain configuration, you should: 

  1. Create a domain zone in your personal account.
  2. Create and configure DNS records.
  3. Specify Gcore nameservers (ns1.gcore.net, ns2.gcdn.services) in the domain settings on the registrant's website.

Interface modes: non-advanced and advanced

The DNS service interface has two modes: non-advanced and advanced. You can find a toggle on the page of any DNS zone.
