Deprovisioning

To deprovision your Edge DNS service, perform the same steps as in Stages 1 and 2 of Go live above, but replace the Akamai servers with your own servers:

  • Stage 1: Delegate your zones to some Akamai servers and some of your own (or original) servers.
  • Stage 2: Delegate your zones to only your own (or original) servers.

To safely complete Stages 1 and 2, follow these steps:

How to

  1. Update the relevant name server records in your zone file.
    CAUTION: You should not disallow these zone updates to propagate to the Akamai servers, as they will continue receiving traffic.
  2. Provide your registrar with the names of your new (or original) name servers that you included in your zone file. Zone changes with the registrar normally take about five minutes to propagate to the top-level domain name servers. At this point, you will routinely start making requests to your own (or original) name servers.
