DNS records in folders

Hello

Currently I have in my (2012R2) DNS Management zone file three folders, each of which was created using the right click and select create new domain. Inside those folders are CNAME files. I am planning on migrating the dns settings to GoDaddy. Is there something I need to do to those files before the migration?

Thanks

It depends.

Will you be hosting those three zones in GoDaddy DNS servers and not use your Windows DNS at all?

Or will you be hosting a split horizon (split brain) DNS on your side?

Or do you want GoDaddy servers to be a stub zone?

Those are subdomains not folder. They look like folder in the administration tools. Folder isn't a DNS term, and that's probably why GoDaddy support is not following.

The equivalent of this:

In the GoDaddy interface is:

134412-image.png

Hope this helps.

I will not be using Windows DNS. When I asked GoDaddy about how to create the folders in their DNS Management Zones, they said they could not be created and to ask Microsoft. If I were just to create the CNAME and SRV files, and put them in with the rest of the DNS files, would they still work?

Thanks for the response

I am not sure what you mean by folder.
You mean subdomains?

Like contoso.com has a folder called us. And in there you have a record test.us.contoso.com?

We created three folders, _domainkey, _tcp and _tls, to hold either CNAME or SRV records for email security or Teams functionality: sipfed.online.gov.skypeforbusiness.us. sipdir.online.gov.skypeforbusiness.us.

If we just place these records in with the rest of the A, MX and TXT records in the DNS Zone Management, will that cause a problem? I am assuming the folders were just a way to organize the DNS files.

Hello @StephenKeating-6929,

I would suggest to post your question in GoDaddy forums, as the community there may have a wider experience with the specifics of the migrations.

Otherwise, I would not recommend to move internal DNS CNAMES to a public provider unless necessary, for matters of security. There other providers for DNS management in Cloud that can provide you the Public/Internal differentiation. Maybe I am outdated but last time I check GD was not providing that differentiation.

Best regards,
