Question

Zone transfer is allowed by default on POA-managed nameservers. Is there a possibility to disable it?

Answer

There is currently no such functionality in POA UI. Feature Request POA-71350 has been submitted to implement it. Also, the request POA-82505 has been submitted to have zone transfer disabled by default on POA-managed nameservers. As a workaround, the following line should be added to options section of /var/named/run-root/etc/named.conf on a POA-managed nameserver in order to disable zone transfers:

options {
   allow-transfer {"none";};
};

Above option will deny all zone transfer requests.
