DNAME - Non-Terminal DNS Name Redirection

Return to FAQ/Help System menu

A DNAME-record is used to map / rename an entire subtree of the DNS name space to another domain.

It differs from the CNAME-record which maps only a single node of the name space.

You can use the DNAME-record in the Raw form only on our servers. The format in which to enter the data is as follows:

Raw form:
@ 86400 DNAME

Where @ is the root zone name, 86400 is the TTL and is where to redirect to.
