How to upgrade the old version of DNSPod international station account?

1. Introduction

The upgrade and redesign of the DNSPod global website was completed on November 13, 2020, and the new website will use the Tencent Cloud account system.

If you have an account of the legacy DNSPod global website, after the upgrade on November 13, 2020, you need to upgrade your account before your can log in to the new console.

After the upgrade is completed, the domains and DNS records under the legacy account will be kept intact and seamlessly migrated to the new account.

Please rest assured that the upgrade will not affect the normal DNS resolution of existing domains.
