Your Data Center's DNS Zone Check
performs several tests on your zone (ie:domain) to ensure that it is
configured and can be safely delegated, providing a certain quality to your domain (see the benefit section).
For detailed information on how to fill this form see the help section.
The time required to completely verify a zone can take
from 10 seconds up to 5 minutes depending on the network
speed of the server being accessed.
If execution takes more than a minute it generally means slow access to your nameservers (configuration error, firewall, ...) is occurring. Expect a timeout.
Among the tests performed you can find checking for:
|Zone||The domain (ie: zone) that should be tested (ie: the domain name that you want to register).|
|Primary||The nameserver that is considered as primary (the one in the SOA record if it is public).|
|Secondary||The secondary nameservers (all the NS records associated with the zone, except for the one listed above).|
|IPs||List of IP addresses associated with the nameserver.
|zone summary||Includes a summary about the zone and its nameservers in the generated report|
|test name||Includes the name of the test that has been performed when reporting errors|
|explanations||Includes an explanation (when the test failed) about the purpose of the test and why you should fix it.|
|details||Includes details (when the test failed) about the culprit elements.|
|description||Give a short description of the test when it is performed.|
|nothing||Don't display information about the test progression.|
|report||Select the type of generated report you want.|

|Options: Extra tests performed|
|mail delivery||Perform extra checking on mail delivery for typical mail accounts (hostmaster, postmaster, ...) associated with domain names.|
|zone transfer||Perform additional tests on the zone retrieved after a zone transfer.|
|RIR databases||Check that IP addresses used are registered in the RIR databases|
