alias - replaces zone apex CNAMEs.

Description

The alias plugin eliminates CNAME records from zone apex by making the subsequent resolved records look like they belong to the zone apex. This behaves similarily to CloudFlare’s Zone Flattening.

This plugin only works with the file plugin with upstream set, or when A or AAAA records exist alongside the CNAME record.

Syntax

alias

Examples

example.com {
  file example.com.db {
    upstream 8.8.8.8
  }
  alias
}

All it does is transform records like this:

;; ANSWER SECTION:
example.com.	300	IN	CNAME	some.magic.example.org.
some.magic.example.org. 299 IN A	123.123.45.67

into

;; ANSWER SECTION:
example.com.	299	IN	A	123.123.45.67
