Procedure

To create a DNS record for a private zone, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud DNS console. In the left-side navigation pane, click PrivateZone.

  2. On the PrivateZone page that appears, find the target private zone and click the zone name to go to the Resolution Settings page.

  3. On the Resolution Settings page, click Add Record.In the dialog box that appears, set the parameters.
