FAQ

What is DNS Zone?

A DNS zone refers to a certain portion or administrative space within the global Domain Name System (DNS). Each DNS zone represents a boundary of authority subject to management by certain entities. The total of all DNS zones, which are organized in a hierarchical tree-like order of cascading lower-level domains, form the DNS namespace. The authority over each DNS zone is delegated to a legal entity or organization (i.e. a country-code top-level domain registry) or a company/individual registered to use a certain sub-domain within the system. Depending on the administrative rights delegated to a certain entity, DNS zones may consist of only one domain, or of many domains and sub-domains. Further authority over a sub-space could be delegated to other parties, if necessary.
