Add Zone&DNS Records

Last Updated: Nov 12, 2018

To add a private zone and configure a record for the zone, follow these steps.

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud DNS console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Zone list, and then click Add Zone.

  3. In the Add PrivateZone dialog box, enter a Zone Name, and click OK.

Note: The Zone Name here is a custom domain name (private domain name), that is, the domain name which you want to resolve in the VPC. You can also use an actual domain name. In the VPC that the private zone is associated with, the PrivateZone record overrides the DNS record for the same domain in the public networks. We recommend that you create a new and informative domain name.

  1. You can view the newly added private zone in the Zone list.

  2. The value in the Records column stands for the number of records for the corresponding private zone. Click the private zone name to enter the Resolution Setting page. Then you can add records for the private zone. For more information about how to add records, see Add records for a private zone.

Note:

  • You must add a record for a private zone before associating the private zone with a VPC.
  • In the VPC that the private zone is associated with, the PrivateZone record overrides the DNS record for the same domain in the public networks.
