Changing DNS records


Changes in DNS records will take effect within 1-2 hours in nearby networks and up to 24 hours worldwide.
If you have changed the DNS records for a domain’s website traffic, it is recommended that you clear your web browser cache before checking the result.

How to change DNS records?

To change the DNS records for a domain, log in to My Zone and click on the desired domain name in the Services Overview page.In the next window, select DNS records.

In the window that opens, you can edit your current DNS records by clicking on the pencil icon in the record section.
To add a new record, click the + Add Record button.

+ Add Record feature allows you to add the following DNS records to a domain: A, AAAA, CAA, CNAME, MX, NS, SRV, SSHFP, TXT, URL.
Among other things, you can use the “NS” record to add separate name servers to the subdomain.

If the domain is located elsewhere, but uses Zone nameservers and webhosting

In this case, you can modify the DNS records for the domain from the server management menu in Webhosting > Nameserver.

Domain is located in Zone and uses Zone nameservers

If you only have a domain under Zone management that uses Zone name servers, you can change DNS records from the menu Domains > DNS Records.

Domain located elsewhere and not using Zone nameservers

If the domain is not administered by Zone and does not use Zone name servers, DNS records can be changed in the name server provider’s environment.

How do I know where my domain name servers are located?

On the Zone.ee homepage, enter the name of your domain in the search box and click on the search icon. On the page that appears, click on “WHOIS data”. You will find the name server information under either “Name Server” or “nserver”.

You can also use any other tool that identifies which name servers the domain is using.

For example https://toolbox.googleapps.com/apps/dig/, choose “NS”.
