Integrated DNS Providers

Table of Contents

DNSimple supports the ability to synchronize, manage, and view zones that are deployed in other DNS providers external to DNSimple. DNSimple calls such providers “integrated DNS providers” and zones “integrated zones”.

Supported Features

  • Import integrated zones: When you link an integrated DNS provider to your DNSimple account, zones hosted on that integrated DNS provider will be imported into DNSimple and listed on the Zones page.
  • Manage integrated zone records: List, create, update, and delete integrated zone records from DNSimple using the Deployment Editor.
  • Sync integrated zone records: Sync your zone records from the integrated zone to DNSimple, or from DNSimple to the integrated zone, with the Deployment Editor.

The list of supported features and record types differs for each integrated provider. See the provider page for more information.
