Formating a zone file is easier than you think! You can access RFC 1035 for further information on how zone files are defined.
Overall, in DNS Made Easy, you can import your zone files by following the BIND zone file format as shown below. If you have all the records you need from your current provider, you can use the zone below as a sample and replace the domain name with yours and its respective values and import your domain into DNS Made Easy. You may also choose your own TTL value.

The Composition of Records in a zone file
A zone file is a collection of resource records with each record entry described in the following sequence:
|Format:||Host Label||TTL||Record Class||Record Type||Record Data|
Things to consider when importing your zone files to DNS Made Easy:
When importing your zone files into DNS Made Easy, we will automatically create an SOA record ( Start of Authority) for your domain. DNS Made Easy will also include the assigned name servers for the domain being imported. These are the same name servers that must be delegated to the domain's registrar so that your records can be propagated throughout the Internet.
HTTP redirection records must be added manually as those are not technically a DNS record but instead an application-level protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. ( RFC 2616 )
