              rently loaded.

       wipe-cache DOMAIN [DOMAIN] [...]
              Wipe entries for DOMAIN from the cache.  This is useful if,  for
              example,  an  important server has a new IP address, but the TTL
              has not yet expired.  Multiple domain names can be passed.  Note
              that  you  must  terminate  a  domain  with a .! So to wipe pow-
              erdns.org, issue 'rec_control wipe-cache  powerdns.org.'.   Ver-
              sions beyond 3.1 don't need the trailing dot.  Consider not only
              wiping 'www.domain.com.' but also 'domain.com.', as  the  cached
              nameservers or target of CNAME may continue to be undesired.
