- Add a Domain With Advanced Configurations
The process for adding a domain is the same as above, but rather than clicking Close after entering your domain(s), click on Advanced Settings to make necessary DNS management configurations. See the Advanced DNS Settings Fields and Descriptions table below for a brief explanation of each setting.
Click Save and proceed with step 4 above.
Advanced DNS Settings Fields and Descriptions
|Select Tag||Tags allow you to categorize, filter, and add templates to various domains.|
|Global Traffic Director||Check the box next to Global Traffic Director if for different query responses based on region.|
|GeoIP||GeoIP enables you to make decisions based on the querying client when this box is checked.|
|Apply Template||Using templates for DNS records lets you apply the same standards and configurations to all of your domains at once. If any changes are made to your template, then it will update all records that use the template. |
Tip: DNS templates are useful for web hosting companies or for organizations with especially large websites.
|Vanity Nameserver Configuration||The Vanity NS Config option allows you to rebrand or white label our nameservers for brand recognition. This feature is also ideal for web hosting companies or for security purposes if your servers are on-site.|
|Secondary DNS Provider|
If you have a secondary DNS provider, this configuration allows Constellix to propagate changes to the checked cloud provider. If you make a change to the control panel or API to customize your DNS, we will make the necessary changes and APIs to the cloud provider to ensure they have the exact same configuration for you.
Note: Certain advanced DNS functionality that Constellix offers might not be supported by some Secondary DNS providers.
|Import DNS Records||The record import option allows you to copy DNS records from an existing template or domain in Constellix. If supported by your previous provider, you can also transfer your records from an external domain via IXFR/AXFR. Constellix also permits you to import zone files that you want to add to your account. This automatically puts the domain name to the zone file and brings it into Constellix.|
