About Find DNS records

In PC language, DNS records are called 'mapping files'. When a web worker sends a solicitation by a client to visit a specific site, the solicitation is shipped off the DNS data set. This information base looks into its records, discovers the site's IP address and advances it to the mentioning worker. In the wake of getting this data, the mentioning worker utilizes the IP address to discover the site and show it to the client who started the solicitation. 

There are letters related with the DNS records which are known as DNS syntax. A portion of the regularly utilized language structure with all DNS records are; A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, PTR, NS, SOA, SRV, TXT and NAPTR.

  • The ‘A’ syntax in a DNS record is the most basic type of syntax. It stands for ‘address’ and indicates the IP address of the website.
  • The ‘AAAA’ record is an IPV6 address which maps the hostname to a 128-bit IPV6 address.
  • The ‘CNAME’ stands for ‘conical name’ and is used to associate sub domains with existing DNS records.
  • The ‘MX’ stands for mail exchange and is used for mail exchange servers.
  • The ‘PTR’ record as the name indicates a pointer record and maps an IPV4 address to the CNAME.
  • The “NS’ record stands for ‘name server’ and indicates the server on which the domain resides.
  • The ‘SOA’ record stores important information about the domain, like when was it last updated, etc.
  • The “SRV’ record indicates which TCP service the domain operates.
  • The ‘TXT’ record permits the website’s administrator to insert any text in the record.
