In the domain detail you can make the following settings:

  • primary IP – IPv4 address of the DNS server from which you wish to download records for this domain (via AXFR) – only for secondary domain types
  • AXFR – by this setting you can allow outgoing AXFR, therefore download zone of this domain from our system to another server, it is possible for both the primary and secondary domains. It is necessary to add one or more IPv4 addresses, which are authorized to perform this download, it can not be allowed to download from anywhere.

By default, the outgoing AXFR is disabled. Usually, you do not need to turn it on. Typically you may enable it if you still have your secondary DNS server for your domains, which continuously updates this domain from our system.
