What is a Domain Name Server (DNS)?
before learning about Managing DNS records let's discuss some kind of records and learn about it, DNS stands for Domain Name System. The main function of DNS is to translate domain names into IP Addresses, which computers can understand. It also provides a list of mail servers that accept Emails for each domain name.
- A Records are the most basic type of DNS record and are used to point a domain or subdomain to an IP address. Assigning a value to an A record is as simple as providing your DNS management panel with an IP address to where the domain or subdomain should point and a TTL.
- A Records are only able to take an IP address as their value and you can point the same domain/subdomain to multiple IP addresses by adding another a record with the same name but with a different IP address for the value.
Mail Exchanger (MX) records are used to help you route email according to the domain preference. The MX record itself specifies which server(s) to attempt to use to deliver mail to when this type of request is made to the domain. you can learn more from this manage MX record article.
