  1. Support for internal managed zones

    The AWS Route53 service give users the possibility to create internal zones (which they call "Private Hosted Zone") where record sets for a domain can be set on resources that are only reachable on Virtual Private Network. For example i can create a "my-company.internal." zone and attached a record set to an internal IP (e.g. "instance-foo.my-company.internal" resolving to 10.0.0.1).

    This proves to be very handy for example when you can reference resources with names instead of IPs in your configuration or when you want to fetch pages from an internal web server to your browser through a VPN.

    • Add search to Cloud DNS zone editor UI

      Today when editing a zone in the Google Cloud Console the records are paginated.
      One of our domains has 1486 records and if I need to manually update a record it takes a bit of paging to find it.

      Please add a search or filter option to quickly find a record, it should look in the record name, type and values.

        • Internal DNS entries for instance tags

          When a tag is applied to an instance it should generate an internal dns entry.

          Example:

          tag prod-db is applied to prod-db-1 instance which has an internal ip of 10.0.0.1

          prod-db-1 would have a fqdn of: prod-db-1.c.project-1.internal and a lookup against that host from a different instance would resolve the ip to 10.0.0.1.

          I'm proposing that additional host entries be added for tags. Example:

          prod-db-tag.c.project-1.internal

          This is useful because just like tags are used for source/destination tags in the firewall they would also be useful via dns from the instances.

          Yes, it's entirely possible to write scripts that determine these…

          • Latency Resource Record Sets for DNS, like GeoDNS

            I know there is HTTP(S) Load Balancing, but it not work for non HTTP application like UDP based or mail service, and HTTP(S) Load Balancing is also expensive, paid for every hour but not pay-as-you-go. It will be good to support GeoDNS like Route53 and that's a easier way to set up Cross-Region Load Balancing.

              • DNS usage statistics

                It would be nice to get some usage statistics report for cloud DNS, something like the reporting wizard of UltraDNS or something similar.

                In the crudest case, just add bigquery export so that custom reports can be generated.

                • Domain Alias

                  If I have domain "abc-def.com" as a main zone.
                  I want the ability to also add "abcdef.com" as an alias zone and what is defined in the first should be available for the alias also.

                    • Issue when creating nested subdomain of verified domain through API

                      Verified domain: example.com
                      Subdomain: d.c.b.a.example.com

                      When trying to create a nested subdomain of a verified domain, at a certain level, it errors with:
                      ERROR: (gcloud.dns.managed-zones.create) HTTPError 400: Please verify ownership of the 'd.c.b.a.example.com.' domain (or a parent) at http://www.google.com/webmasters/verification/ and try again

                      The weird thing is that there are no issues with creating a.example.com, b.a.example.com or c.b.a.example.com through the API (gcloud CLI or terraform).

                      Also, creating the same domain via the control panel works with no issues. We are doing that currently as a workaround and importing it in the terraform state but it is cumbersome and error prone.

                        • Move domain between projects

                          Not sure if this can already be done, but a way to move a domain between projects in the UI, rather than having to re-add all the records manually.
