Converting an A record to a domain in Infolox

Is there a recommended (and hopefully seamless) way to essentially convert an A record to a domain?  I have been requested to create a DKIM TXT record for an existing "domain", but I noticed the specified "domain" is simply an A record within our top level domain. While I know I can create the TXT record in the top level domain, I am uncertain whether DKIM, SPF, etal discern real DNS domain boundries as opposed to dots in the name.  I certainly don't want this TXT record to affect our top level domain.

hi,

 

if you add a subzone to the zone with a name which already contains a-record with this name.

the existng record will be converted to an apex-record within thenewly created zone.

this way preserving the ip-adress connected to the a-record.

 

this will make your zone/domain while still adding a zone.
