How to use Openprovider nameservers


What are the usage scenarios of Openprovider DNS servers?


Master configuration

When requesting a domain one can choose to use Openprovider nameservers.

In case a DNS zone for the domain that is being registered does not yet exist, a master zone will be created automatically based on the selected template.

NB: Master zones can be created prior to domain registration.

Slave configuration

Slave zones have to be created prior to domain registration since record synchronisation between Openprovider and one's master server can take up to a minute.

NB: it is not possible to run one's own slave nameserver and use Openprovider as a master nameserver. In order to support such configuration, Openprovider would have to open its master nameserver, including all DNS zones that it stores.
