Plesk as a Slave DNS Server

If you host websites on your account and have a standalone DNS server acting as a primary (master) name server for your sites, you may want to set up the Plesk's DNS server to function as a secondary (slave) name server.

To make the Plesk's DNS server act as a secondary name server:

  1. Go to Websites & Domains and click the domain name whose DNS settings you want to manage.
  2. Click DNS Settings.
  3. Click Master/Slave to switch DNS server mode.
  4. Click Add Record.
  5. Specify the IP address of the primary (master) DNS server.
  6. Click OK, and then click Update.
  7. Repeat steps from 2 to 6 for each website that needs to have a secondary name server on your server.

To make the Plesk's DNS server act as a primary back:

  1. Go to Websites & Domains and click the domain name whose DNS settings you want to manage.
  2. Click DNS Settings.
  3. Click Master/Slave to switch DNS server mode.

    The original resource records for the zone will be restored.
