Enable GTD for a Domain

What is Global Traffic Director 

The Global Traffic Director (GTD) allows you to specify different zone files in different regions of the world. Querying clients in each region will resolve the domain name based on only that region’s zone file. This becomes useful if you have servers in different regions of the world that host content for your domain. GTD speeds up response times because querying clients are sent to the closest name server to their location.

1. Click Domains
Navigate to Managed DNS Domains

2. Select Your Domain
Select the domain you want to add GTD to. 

3. Click Advanced Settings
