DNS records are an essential component of the internet infrastructure. They are responsible for resolving domain names into IP addresses that computers can use to communicate with each other. Without DNS records, navigating the web would be a lot harder. In this blog post, we’ll look at six critical DNS records you need to know. So, let’s start!
A Record (Address Record)
The A record is the most basic DNS record. It maps a domain name to an IP address. Whenever a user enters a domain name into their browser, the browser sends a request to the DNS server to resolve the domain name into an IP address using the A record. This record serves to point a domain name to a domain name’s IP address, allowing users to access a website.
