As an application operator, you can make your organization's domains available for different DNS use cases in Tanzu Service Mesh, such as public services. To enable domains, you can must create DNS accounts on the DNS & Domains page.

When you create a DNS account, you specify the name of the external DNS provider that manages your organization's domains. The DNS provider name matches the name of the integration account that you have created for the provider. Tanzu Service Mesh uses the configuration in the integration account to connect to the DNS provider, get a list of the domains, and make them available for use in Tanzu Servish Mesh. For more information about integration accounts, see Manage Integrations.

The DNS accounts that you create determine the domains that are available for selection when users configure public services in Tanzu Service Mesh. For more information about public services, see Create a Public Service.
