Default zone file template

Principle of the zone file

A zone file is a text file, stored in the system of the server hosting a domain name. It defines the set of records (MX, NS, A, etc.) linked to a DNS zone.

These records correspond to different services associated with a domain name. The MX server corresponds, for example, to emails.

When someone wants to visit your site, or send you an e-mail, their server queries your zone file for the IP address to display or the name of the MX server to which they should send the email.

The default zone file template therefore allows you to automatically assign a zone file template to your domain names.
