Auth-DNS: Smart Routing with Enhanced Records

To leverage the smart routing options in the NOC Auth-DNS service a zone file must have more than one A record for the same domain.

To create multiple A records for the same domain, do the following:

Step 1 – Open Domain Zone File

From the Authoritative DNS dashboard, click the name of the domain in your domain list.

This will automatically open the zone file for the domain.

Step 2 – Add New Record

Click Add New Record

Select the A record type.

Name your subdomain, in our example we’ll go with smart.

Repeat the process twice, using the same name for the subdomain, but selecting a different IP for the origin.

Doing this will automatically activate the enhanced records interface.

Step 3 – Configure Smart Routing Options

Click on “edit enhanced options” to access the smart routing options:
