Domain Connect is a standard that enables DNS providers to provide a mechanism for service providers to add or update DNS records on the domain, as follows. The service provider redirects their users (owners of domains) to the DNS provider for authentication and authorization, after which the service provider adds or updates the DNS records on behalf of the user. Although it is possible that the service provider interfaces with the user in a way consistent with the user’s locale, the DNS provider might still be incognizant of the user’s locale. Furthermore, even recent versions of the Domain Connect specification don’t provide ways for a DNS provider to leverage the locale information of the user.

This disclosure describes techniques that preserve the locale/language as the user is passed along from the service provider to the DNS provider. These techniques enable a locale-specific user experience and a load balancing of traffic to the DNS Provider servers based on the user’s location.
