Our DNS activity log provides a way for administrators and designated sub-users to view actions and changes within their DNS Made Easy account. The log includes all changes made since your account’s creation and is an excellent means of managing your DNS. To track down issues or find specific information, you can perform a search that narrows down results and helps you find what you need faster. This guide will show you how the search function works.
The Activity log search function lets you perform simple or complex searches for investigative or troubleshooting purposes. This feature lets you quickly find the exact information you need, without having to manually sift through the activity log.
