Provides a single DNS domain managed on IBM Cloud Classic Infrastructure (SoftLayer). Domains contain general information about the domain name, such as the name and serial number.

Individual records, such as A, AAAA, CTYPE, and MX records, are stored in the domain’s associated resource records using the ibm_dns_record resource.

Example Usage

resource "ibm_dns_domain" "dns-domain-test" {
    name = ""
    target = ""
