What is a DNS zone?
A DNS zone is a portion of the DNS namespace that is managed by a specific organization or administrator. When a web browser or network device needs to find the IP address for a domain name, it performs a DNS lookup – essentially a DNS zone check – A common mistake is to associate a DNS zone with a domain name or a single DNS server. In fact, a DNS zone can contain multiple subdomains and multiple zones can exist on the same server.
You can add and edit a DNS zone from your WHM panel in a few simple steps.
