About Find DNS records

What are DNS records?

Domain Name System or DNS in short is the digital database of the internet. It is like the Internet's phone book where it uses the IP address as a phone number and domain name as contact names. The domain information is stored on DNS servers and to add this domain information to the DNS system, you need to set up resource records. With the help of resource records, servers share domain information. If the resource records for the domain are not registered, it is not in the “phone book” of the Internet, i.e., not in the DNS records. Therefore, the operation of the website on it is impossible.

Note: Before you start specifying resource records, you need to give the domain, that is, register DNS servers for it.

There exist the following types of DNS resource records:

  • Type A implies that an IPv4 address has been allocated to the record. It is the most common resource record.
  • AAAA means that the IPv6 address is allocated to the resource.
  • CNAME indicates that the hostname is pointing to another hostname.
  • MX or Mail Exchange is used to indicate mail exchange servers.
  • NS or Name Server is used to indicate the server on which the domain resides
  • SOA or State of Authority is used to store information about the domain and indicates when the last time the domain was updated.
  • SRV stands for Service and indicates the TCP service used by the domain.
  • TXT record allows the webmaster, SEO, or administrator to insert any text in the record.
  • PTR is pointer records that are used for reverse lookups and map an IPV4 address to the CNAME.
