Edge DNS API

Welcome to ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč Edge DNS service. Edge DNS integrates easily with your existing DNS infrastructure to provide a secure, high performance, highly available and scalable solution for DNS hosting. As part of this service, Akamai runs name servers in multiple networks and in many geographic locations that are capable of resolving queries for your zones. ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč IP Anycast technology is also capable of providing an unprecedented level of reliability and performance for name resolution.

The Edge DNS service supports three types of zones:

  • Primary: ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč serves the DNS records of your zones without the need for master DNS servers maintained by you.
  • Secondary: ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč serves the DNS records of your zones obtained by performing secured zone transfers from your master name server.
  • Alias: ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč automatically mirrors the configuration of another Edge DNS zone, serving the same DNS records on both the alias zone and the target zone. For example, if you have registered a misspelled domain such as examlpe.com and you want it to have the same DNS records as example.com.

Unlike the v1 API, this API allows you to manage the configuration of all of your Edge DNS zones as well as the record sets of your Primary zones.
