How to change DNS server SOA record of a particlular domain?


Currently, Plesk generates SOA records automatically with the first NS record added. There is no any functionality to select another name server directly.

To set the desired NS record as name server in SOA record, we need to apply following steps:

  1. Remove all name servers from the DNS zone.

  2. Add the desired primary NS record, and update SOA record. It will generate SOA record with the desired name server.

  3. Add the name servers back.
