Import is used especially in a situation where you want to transfer your domain from another DNS server into our system. No need to manually transcribe records.

Import can be done in 3 ways:

  • After entering of IP address of original DNS server – Our system will try to download the domain records over AXFR
  • by loading zone file of the domain (BIND text format)
  • direct input of zone file content in the text box (BIND text format)

The first method is the simplest, records are transferred in a few clicks, but AXFR transfer from the second DNS server must be able to. AXFR is not always allowed.

From the acquired or entered records are filtered out those that can not be imported (for example unsupported types, for different domains, etc..). Import should deal with different entry styles, missing columns with default values, relative and absolute names, etc..

Obtained data are displayed first in a text box where you can make any modifications.

Next by click on the button import, you can display a preview of the records in a table. If everything is correct, click complete import, or click on Back for return to editation of imported records.

CAUTION! Doing this will import all original records of this domain will be deleted! Import can not be used to add additional records to the existing.
