How to configure Plesk if DNS zones are hosted on an external NS server?
Create all DNS zones on the external NS servers and apply one of the following solutions in Plesk:
External DNS server for all domains
Uninstall Plesk DNS service: go to Tools & Settings > Updates > Add/Remove Components and deselect the corresponding component ( ‘BIND DNS server support’ on Linux and ‘Microsoft DNS server’ on Windows).
Note: since Microsoft DNS server cannot be removed it can be disabled as described in Unable to remove Microsoft DNS on Plesk server: The component Microsoft DNS Server cannot be removed
Note: managing zones through Plesk will not be possible. The external DNS server will be used instead.
