Cloud DNS Zone

Creating a Route 53 hosted zone to program DNS entries

The DuploCloud platform needs a unique GCP Cloud DNS zone to create DNS entries for services that you deploy. The domain must be created out-of-band and set in DuploCloud. The zone is a subdomain such as apps.[MY-COMPANY].com.

Never use this subdomain for anything else, as DuploCloud owns all CNAME entries in this domain and removes all entries it has no record of.

To create the Route53 hosted zone using the GCP Console:

  1. Log in to the GCP console.

  2. Navigate to Cloud DNS under Network Services.

  3. Create a new zone with the desired domain name, for example,

  4. Access the zone and note the name server names.

  5. Go to your root Domain Provider's site (for, for example), and create a NS record that references the domain name of the hosted zone you created ( and add the zone name to the name servers that you noted above.

Once this is complete, provision the Zone in every DuploCloud Plan, starting with the default plan. Add the zone Name and domain name, preceded with a dot (.).

Do not forget the dot (.) at the beginning of the DNS suffix, in the form as shown below.

Note that this domain must be set in each new Plan you create in your DuploCloud Infrastructure.
