Zone Orders with Scheduled Execution Time

Changes to DNS entries entered via the zone file editor can by provided with an execution time. Thus you can schedule e.g. changes to redirect targets or the switch to a new hosting server to any date or time you like, perhaps after midnight or during a weekend, without the need to be present at that moment.

Of course DNS requests cannot be timed exactly to a minute. It is a good practice to set the TTL value of the relevant entries to a minimum value (such as 300 seconds) well ahead of the date the change is planned for. Together with scheduled execution of the actual change it will take place within a few minutes.

Imagine planning the lauch of a new website during a press event – using scheduled execution the new website will come up during your speech without the need of any manual interaction at that time!
