DNS Resource Records
A Host address (A) resource record. Maps a DNS domain name to an Internet Protocol (IP) version 4 32-bit address.
AAAA IPv6 host address (AAAA) resource record. Maps a DNS domain name to an Internet Protocol (IP) version 6 128-bit address.
CNAME Canonical name (CNAME) resource record. Maps an aliased or alternate DNS domain name in the owner field to a canonical or primary DNS domain name specified in the canonical_name field. The canonical or primary DNS domain name used in the data is required and must resolve to a valid DNS domain name in the namespace.
HINFO Host information (HINFO) resource record. Specifies the type of CPU and operating system in the cpu_type and os_type fields, respectively, for the host DNS domain name in the owner field.
MX Mail exchanger (MX) resource record. Provides message routing to a mail exchanger host, as specified in mail_exchanger_host, for mail sent to the domain name specified in the owner field. A 2-digit preference value indicates preferred ordering if multiple exchanger hosts are specified. Each exchanger host must have a corresponding host (A) address resource record in a valid zone.
NS Used to map a DNS domain name as specified in owner to the name of hosts operating DNS servers specified in the name_server_domain_name field.
NXT Next resource record. NXT resource records indicate the nonexistence of a name in a zone by creating a chain of all of the literal owner names in that zone.
OPT Option resource record. One OPT resource record can be added to the additional data section of either a DNS request or response. An OPT resource record belongs to a particular transport level message, such as UDP, and not to actual DNS data. Only one OPT resource record is allowed, but not required, per message.
PTR Pointer (PTR) resource record. Points from the name in owner to another location in the DNS namespace as specified by targeted_domain_name. Often used in special domains such as the in-addr.arpa domain tree to provide reverse lookups of address-to-name mappings.
RP Responsible Person (RP) resource record. Specifies the domain mailbox name for a responsible person in mailbox_name.
SIG Signature resource record. Encrypts an RRset to a signer’s (RRset’s zone owner) domain name and a validity interval.
SOA Start of authority (SOA) resource record. Indicates the name of origin for the zone and contains the name of the server that is the primary source for information about the zone.
SRV Service locator (SRV) resource record. Allows multiple servers providing a similar TCP/IP-based service to be located using a single DNS query operation.
TXT Text (TXT) resource record. Maps a DNS domain name specified in the owner field to a string of characters in text_string serving as descriptive text.
WKS : Well-known service (WKS) resource record. Describes the well-known TCP/IP services supported by a particular protocol on a specific IP address.
X25 X.25 (X25) resource record. Maps a DNS domain name in the owner field to a Public Switched Data Network (PSDN) address number specified in psdn_number.
