Cross account subzone delegation

Cross account subzone delegation provides a mechanism for a parent zone owner to securely grant another Akamai Edge DNS account the capability to delegate subzones on the owner’s existing zones. The zone owner participating in subzone grant requests needs to have their Edge DNS contract authorized for subzone grants. Contact your service representative for authorization.

After a service representative adds a zone owner’s contract to the allow list, the zone owner can enable subzone delegation on a specified zone. Enabling subzone creation permits any Akamai customer to submit a subzone request on this zone.

Without an approved subzone grant request, every subzone starts in a PENDING_APPROVAL state. The subzone owner can begin building up records and uploading zone files while they wait for approval of their request from the Zone owner. The zone owner is notified of any pending subzone requests and either approves or rejects them during the review process.
