AFSDB Records

AFSDB Records are used to connect domain names to AFS servers, AFS being a network filesystem, similar to NFS but more suited to handle the latency of wide area networks, like the Internet, and locally caches files. The AFSDB record is key to this operation, by providing the location to the file database. 

Note: This record is experimental and not recognized by all services, and not all nameservers recognize or implement it. The AFSDB record type is deprecated and has been replaced by the SRV record.
