Questions and answers

What is a DNS zone?

A DNS zone is a logical space with your resources' domain names. You manage their hierarchy and route users' DNS queries while granting or denying them access to data. One option is to build demo VMs in the testing zone and primary VMs in the production zone, and making certain addresses available, for examples, only to sales managers or lawyers.

What DNS zones can I create?

  • Internal DNS zones

  • Public DNS zones

Domain names in public zones are available via the internet. Domain names from internal zones are only available in Virtual Private Cloud networks.
