Manage Legacy DNS Zones
All DNS zones that were created before October 15th, 2018 will be classified as Legacy DNS zones. These DNS zones will continue to operate unaffected and unchanged. While we do plan to convert LEGACY DNS zones to regular zones in the coming weeks, Resellers with active Legacy zones are strongly encouraged to convert them to regular Premium DNS zones to help us speed up the clean up process.
Operation and migration of Legacy DNS zones are as follows:
Legacy DNS zone where HEXONET is the registrar of the domain:
These DNS zones will continue to operate unaffected and unchanged under the original agreed terms and conditions until October 15th, 2019. After the one-year grace period, these DNS zones that have not been upgraded to Premium DNS will be automatically (and without charge) converted to DNS zones under the new and free Basic DNS terms and conditions. The following apply:
- Customers can convert and upgrade these Legacy DNS zones into the paid Premium DNS at anytime during the year.
- If the respective domain name for a Legacy DNS zone is transferred to another registrar or expires during the one-year grace period, the DNS zone will be permanently deleted.
Legacy DNS zone where HEXONET is NOT the registrar of the domain (External):
These DNS zones will continue to operate unaffected and unchanged under the original agreed terms and conditions, including the monthly service fees. The following apply:
- Customers can convert and upgrade these Legacy DNS zones into the standard Premium DNS at anytime during the year.
Using Control Panel
Legacy DNS zones will be listed under DNS Service > Legacy DNS Zones
You can see all of your Legacy DNS zones with the following command:
COMMAND = QueryDNSZoneList MAXCREATEDDATE = 2018-10-14 PREMIUMDNSCLASS = !* PROPERTIES = PREMIUMDNS WIDE = 1 USERDEPTH = Self
To upgrade your Legacy DNS zone to Premium DNS, you must first determine if the zone is internal or external using STATUSDNSZONE:
COMMAND = StatusDNSZone DNSZONE = (DNS zone name)
Upgrade External Legacy DNS zone
If STATUSDNSZONE returns PREMIUMDNSCLASS as LEGACY, the zone is external. Example command:
[COMMAND] COMMAND = StatusDNSZone DNSZONE = (DNS zone name) EOF [RESPONSE] CODE = 200 DESCRIPTION = Command completed successfully PROPERTY[PREMIUMDNSCLASS] = LEGACY PROPERTY[PREMIUMDNS] = (Premium DNS object ID) ... EOF
To upgrade this zone, execute the following command:
COMMAND = UpgradePremiumDNS CLASS = (Premium DNS plan) OBJECTID = (Premium DNS object ID)
Upgrade Internal Legacy DNS zone
If STATUSDNSZONE does not return PREMIUMDNSCLASS property, the zone is internal. To upgrade this zone, execute the following command:
COMMAND = CreatePremiumDNS DNSZONE = (DNS zone name) CLASS = (Premium DNS plan)
