Create a zone to house a collection of hosts whose DNS settings will be collectively managed as a single unit. You can create zones manually, import, upload, or transfer zones from another management company, or create a secondary zone to serve as a backup for the primary zone.
Watch this video for a brief tutorial on how to set up and manage your first zone.
