Import My Domain's Zone File Records

You can import domain zone file records from a third party. For example, if you want us to manage your domain name's DNS, you can import zone file records exported from your current DNS manager or import a zone file currently in use on a BIND DNS server.

The data format follows the BIND zone file format and RFC 1035. We do not support all BIND zone file features, and we only support the import of A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, TXT, and SRV record types.

Warning - Importing will merge and duplicate all existing zone records.

  1. Log in to your GoWebsite account.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.
  3. You must be in the list view of your account in order to import zone file records. In the upper right corner of your account, choose the list view:
  4. Click on the domain whose zone files you want to import.
  5. Select the DNS Zone File tab.
  6. From the More menu, select Import Zone File.

  7. Click Select Files to locate and open the files you want to import.
  8. Click the box next to I understand that this imported file will be merged ... to acknowledge that importing will merge all existing zone records.
  9. Click Save.
