As communicated to Zerigo customers, on April 30, 2017, Zerigo DNS will shut down permanently. We thank you for your business and apologize for this inconvenience.
If you are managing a public Web site or other Internet domain using Zerigo DNS, you must migrate to an alternative DNS provider prior to April 30th, 2017 in order to prevent a DNS error message from displaying when a user visits your website.
Two migration options are available:
For customers who choose to migrate to Amazon Route 53, Zerigo natively supports the ability to automatically synchronize zones. In the Zerigo console, choose ‘Preferences’ and navigate to the ‘AWS Setting’ tab to access this functionality.
For customers who choose to migrate to a DNS provider other than Amazon, you can move your existing DNS records to a new zone manually. This can be completed by downloading an exported copy of your domain’s host records along with the records that Zerigo adds automatically. Because the export is built with live data from Zerigo name servers, if you have recently modified your name server data, wait at least 30 minutes before downloading your records to ensure the modifications are included in your export. Please note, the export file is BIND compatible and this means records not part of the DNS specifications are not included. Do not export a domain and then reimport it as you will lose those records.
When Zerigo DNS terminates service, your account will automatically be cancelled. We recommend completing migration well in advance of the April 30th shut down date to ensure that all queries are being properly directed to your new provider.
