I did find that but down understand what i have to do.

I have upgraded one dns server for testing

I added: /etc/pdns/pdns.conf

And add expand-alias=yes

Created a record:

plate-assets.com  ALIAS www.plate-assets.com

Restarted pdns

dig plate-assets.com ANY @ns3.tikklik.com
but no record
only the NS records

Im nut running my own resolvers, im using the resolvers of my daacenter


Met vriendelijke groet,

Im getting the question from a client that wants to use ALIAS to point domain.com to www.domain.com <http://www.domain.com>  witch is a cname

Is this implemented yet?

Im using pdns.x86_64           3.4.11-4.el7

Is there any info how to set it up and how to test?

Did you try googling "powerdns alias record"?  Here is the first hit:


and the third hit:

This says that the feature was introduced in 4.0.0, so you'll need to upgrade.

You can find up-to-date CentOS/RHEL packages at https://repo.powerdns.com/
