Why is it impossible to delete all DNS records from a zone?
According to RFC2181 , NS records are the mandatory records:
- The authoritative servers for a zone are enumerated in the NS records for the origin of the zone, which, along with a Start of Authority (SOA) record are the mandatory records in every zone.
The only way to forcefully clear all records from the zone is to use the following CLI command via SSH :
# plesk bin dns -da example.com
