What types of records are there and what are they?

a record

a record is the record data containing the information to which ip address your domain name will be transmitted to. thanks to the a records, instead of entering the ip addresses of the websites, we can directly enter a domain name so that this domain name can be identified. this term is called the a record because the letter a serves as an abbreviation of the words "address". the most frequently used and most important parameter of the domain name is the a record.?

mx record

MX (Mail Exchanger) record is a type of DNS record associated with your domain, which takes the task of forwarding the mails to your e-mail address to the server where your e-mail account is located. At this point, if you use more than one mail server connected to your domain name, you can save the mx records as 0, 5, 10, 20, etc. You can create multiple records by prioritizing with values.

in line with your prioritization, your messages are first directed to the server with the lowest “priority” value. if there is no response from this server, it is directed to other servers in the ranking. If there are servers with the same “priority” value, random selection is made between these servers.

cname record

cname ensures that a computer is known by one or more host names. first of all, there should be an A record, which should be an official name. for example:

example.com. A

using cname, you can forward other hostnames to an official (a record) address. For example:

  • ftp.example.com. cname example.com.
  • mail.example.com. cname example.com.
  • ssh.example.com. cname example.com.

cname records include your domain ftp.example.com, mail.example.com, etc. helps you view through. if you do not have a proper cname record, you cannot connect to your server using such addresses.

txt record

these types of records are special purpose records. they are generally used to define "spf" records, which is one of the rules considered to prevent spam e-mail sending. can be used to prove that you own a domain name.
