DNS Wizard template question
 
Hello all,

I have a question. If you have been noticing ISPC has option to disable field like Domain, IP address, NS 1,NS 2 and email in DNS Wizard template.

My question is other than disabling Email and NS2 field, I'm curious whether IP address field can be disable? I try to disable it but during DNS zone creation with wizard the IP address field only have {IP} in its field and the domain can't propagate to the website.

but I have seen some other DNS provider where your client can just enter their host nameserver. Example: NS1.hostgator.com and NS2.hostgator.com (without adding IP) and the domain propagate to the client website.

Does it actually possible? Key in both the nameserver and domain name without IP? or my question don't make any sense because I can't see how domain can't work without IP in A records.

Thanks for your time. :)

If you disable the IP address field, then you have to replace the {IP} placehodre with the IP address in the template.

you select the options that are variable and you configure the options that are static.

here is my template for customers using google apps for there mail provider but me for all the rest of their hosting..
All the wizard asks for is the domain, it knows what the rest should be from the template
Code:

[ZONE]
origin={DOMAIN}.
ns=NS1.NAYR.NET.
mbox=DNS@NAYR.NET.
refresh=28800
retry=7200
expire=604800
minimum=86400
ttl=86400

[DNS_RECORDS]
A|{DOMAIN}.|173.164.61.33|0|86400
A|{DOMAIN}.|173.164.61.44|0|86400
CNAME|*|{DOMAIN}.|0|86400
NS|{DOMAIN}.|NS1.NAYR.NET.|0|86400
NS|{DOMAIN}.|NS2.NAYR.NET.|0|86400
MX|{DOMAIN}.|aspmx.l.google.com.|10|86400
MX|{DOMAIN}.|aspmx2.googlemail.com.|30|86400
MX|{DOMAIN}.|aspmx3.googlemail.com.|30|86400
MX|{DOMAIN}.|aspmx4.googlemail.com.|30|86400
MX|{DOMAIN}.|aspmx5.googlemail.com.|30|86400
