Announcing Linked Zones

It’s common to have multiple DNS zones where one zone is a “vanity domain” for a “real” zone.

For example, if your main zone is, you may also purchase as a secondary zone. In this case, you want any records created in to also be available under — that is, and should point to the same place. Furthermore, as changes get made to the main zone, you want the changes to also be reflected in zone.

You could create the two zones and keep them manually in sync, but, we bet you have better things to spend your time on.

That’s why we cooked up a simpler solution called “Linked Zones“. Linked Zones allow you to create these vanity domains which point to the “real” (target) zones containing the records.

Linked Zones are now available in the NSONE portal and the NSONE API
