Import DNS Records from a Zone File

Importing from a zone file is possible if you have a text based zone file in BIND format for your domain.

Example Zone File

$ORIGIN example.com. ; designates the start of this zone file in the namespace
$TTL 1h ; default expiration time of all resource records without their own TTL value
example.com. IN SOA ns.example.com. username.example.com. ( 2007120710 1d 2h 4w 1h )
example.com. IN NS ns
example.com. IN NS ns.somewhere.example.
example.com. IN MX 10 mail.example.com.
@ IN MX 20 mail2.example.com.
@ IN MX 50 mail3
