With Edgeport’s Routing solution, you get robust, high-performance, and secure DNS service for your web application. It allows you to effectively manage DNS records directly through the platform’s dashboard and leverage the built-in mitigation for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks on your servers.

So, navigate to the Routing section within the service menu.

  • If you haven't created any DNS Zone yet, you'll encounter an introductory screen with a proposal to set up it - follow this tutorial to accomplish this.

  • Once you’ve configured the first DNS zone for your project, the section interface will change as follows:

Here, you get access to the following options:

Monitoring the Requests

In the upper section of the frame, you'll find the Requests graph - it displays the number of queries received by your DNS zone during the selected time interval (either Last 24 hours or Last Month).

You can choose the desired time frame using the dropdown list located to the right, as illustrated below:

This data is valuable for assessing the workload your project is handling.

Adding New Records

Click on the Add New Record button in the top right corner to modify the configuration of your DNS zone by adding custom DNS records to it:

In the opened frame, you’ll need to select the required record Type and complete the remaining fields based on your selection.

To explore the comprehensive list of supported record types, along with details about their purposes and recommendations for filling in their properties, please refer to this guide.

Once you've entered the necessary details, confirm your entries by clicking Add.

Note that these changes may take some time to propagate across all service Points of Presence (PoPs), typically up to a maximum of 24 hours.

Managing DNS Records

In the lower part of the screen, you’ll find a section dedicated to managing the already existing records within your DNS zone.

It consists of two parts: system-defined records and your custom records.

System-Defined Records

Clicking on the Default records line reveals a complete list of mandatory records that were automatically added to the configuration by Edgeport’s DNS service upon Creating a DNS Zone.

This list includes the records of the following types:

  • NS records - state the domains of Edgeport’s vanity name servers to which queries are directed

  • A records - define the IPv4 addresses that correspond to Edgeport’s vanity name servers.

  • AAAA records - define the IPv6 addresses that correspond to Edgeport’s vanity name servers.

Please Note that while these system-defined records cannot be edited or deleted, you are free to add, modify, or delete your custom NS, A, and AAAA records as you need them.

Custom Records

All your manually added records are displayed beneath the list of default records:

To facilitate navigation through your custom records, use the Type selection on the right to sort the list by record type. Or, you can locate a particular string by specifying the appropriate record Name, Type, or Value within the search field above.

Any of your custom records can be easily edited or removed using the corresponding icons provided on each line.

Confirm your changes by selecting Save.

In the resulting pop-up, confirm this action by selecting the Delete button.

Please pay attention that this action cannot be undone.

Removing DNS Zone

Click the Remove DNS Zone button at the top of the frame to initiate this action.

In the confirmation frame that appears, input the DNS zone name followed by a dot (as prompted by the hint in the frame's text), and confirm your choice by clicking Delete Zone.

Please pay attention that this action cannot be undone.
