After clicking Export records, the BIND zone file will be downloaded to your PC as a text file with the .zone extension, e.g., sample-test.com.zone.

The downloaded file will contain information about the zone, including the domain name, TTL, RRset, time intervals (refresh, update, and expiry), and the authoritative NS server. For example:

$ORIGIN test.dnsexample.com.
$TTL 300
@ IN SOA ns1.gcorelabs.net. support.gcore.com. (
  1690969313 ; serial number
  5400 ; refresh
  3600 ; update retry
  1209600 ; expiry
  300 ; minimum
$TTL 3600
@ IN NS ns1.gcorelabs.net.
@ IN NS ns2.gcdn.services.
$TTL 600
@ IN A
@ IN A
* IN CNAME sample.domains.com.
* IN CNAME sample-2.domains.com.


After clicking Import records, a new pop-up will appear. Specify the content of the BIND zone file for your domain or click Upload zone file to import records from the file with the .zone extension. Then, click Import.
