Using ZoneEdit as a slave with own IPv6 as primary name server


New Member
I have setup my domain so that I use ZoneEdit as name server slave and uses my own as primary (with periodical zone-transfers). This is called Domain Type: Secondary DNS in the Web GUI. Under DNS Settings -> primary NS I have filled in my IPv4 IP of my own DNS.

My ISP may switch to using IPv6 addresses instead of IPv4. When I type in a IPv6 name in Primary Name Servers: text field I get the error message:
You must specify the IP address (not a host name), of your primary name server.

Question: Does ZoneEdit not support a IPv6 DNS server as primary name server?

HI there
at present IPv6 primaries are not supported but we do hope to have this option available soon.. No ETA at present though.
