Hello Ichsan,

The DNS authority key is mainly used for internal usage to protect the DNS associated with the name servers for the account. There are numerous accounts on some servers, and they need to be identified in one way or another so that changes pushed to the DNS are appropriately authorized. You could say it's security for the DNS settings of your account. I hope this helps to clarify the term.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Regards,
Arnel C.
