Record Types

A DNS record is the basic unit of information in the DNS. A record is identified by a domain name (like www.example.com), a type (like A, AAAA, MX, NS, and so on) indicating the type of information contained in the record, some control information like DNS cache time-to-live (TTL), and "answer" data like server IPs, mail hosts, etc, depending on the record type. NS1 supports the following DNS record types:
