DNS Management - Add Zone

Depending on the VPS plan you have, SlaveData gives you the ability to host and manage your Domains in our DNS infrastructure.
Currently this service is offered by the following DNS servers:
  • ns2.govps.gr - 62.210.50.161
  • ns3.govps.gr - 141.101.131.76

In order to add a new domain into VPS Cloud Console proceed to the following steps:

Step 1
Login to your Cloud Console Panel https://cc.slavedata.com

Step 2
Select DNS from the Left Panel, and on the following screen press Add Zone



Step 3
Fill in the following details and then press Add Zone
Zone name:
desired zone name
Primary Nameserver: ns2.govps.gr
Domain Admin email: desired admin email for the domain



Step 4
After adding your zone, a popup should be displayed, informing that the zone has been successfully added.



Step 5
After adding the zone, you have to add two basic records, in order the zone to function correctly. These records are indicating which are the authoritative servers for your newly added domain.

Step 6
Go to DNS page and you should see the zone you have created, so press the Gear right after your zone in order to manage it.



Step 7
Normally you should see no records inside the zone, so press Add Zone Record in order to add new ones.



Step 8
A pop up should be displayed, so add the following information:
  • Host: Just leave it as is, null
  • Type: NS
  • Content: ns2.govps.gr
  • Priority: 0
  • TTL: 3600

And then press Add Record
A pop up should be displayed, indicating that the record has been successfully added.



Step 9
Repeat the last step, in order to add a second record, for the second authoritative dns server:
  • Host: Just leave it as is, null
  • Type: NS
  • Content: ns3.govps.gr
  • Priority: 0
  • TTL: 3600



After that point, you can start adding records to your newly created zone.
Remember that, ns2.govs.gr and ns3.govps.gr should be added into your domain registrar’s configuration as DNS servers for your domain.
