It's expected that zones can't be created in this manner (there's a script
that ops can run to do it properly), but there shouldn't be an HTTP 500
anywhere in the process.

One thing to check is whether there is a proxy by that name. If there is
you should be careful trying to make a zone in its place

For the record:,_or_records_under_the_wmflabs.org_domain?

Forbidden seems a reasonable HTTP code given no other project is allowed to create registers for that domain (it belongs to other project).

before trying to do anything I've checked with a simple DNS query that is available right now:

vgutierrez$ host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

This should be done now:

root@cloudcontrol1004:~# wmcs-makedomain --project traffic --domain

Please @Vgutierrez try now and reopen task if required.
