Zones

 

This menu entry includes a list of existing DNS zones (if any) and a button Create new zone.

When you click Create new zone or you click on an existing DNS zone, you are presented with a new page.


Note: Many settings that are available here are too advanced to be covered in this manual - those settings do not include a description. If you do not know what a certain setting does, it is best to leave it at its default value. Please refer to DNS documentation (e.g. browse RFC - http://tools.ietf.org/rfc/) for more information and/or contact your network administrator.
