A Record, MX Record, CNAME Record, URL Forward, NS Record, Dynamic Record

1, cname (canonicalname) record, (aliasfromondomainnametoanother) is usually called alias pointing

You can transfer the registered different domains to a primary domain! Unlike a record, the CNAME alias record setting can be a description of a domain name and not necessarily an IP address!

2, URL (UniformResourcecelocator) Forward: URL forwarding

Function: If you don’t have a **** standby server (that is, there is no separate IP address) or you still have a domain name B, you want to access the B domain name when you have domain name, then you can pass URL forwarded.

URL forwarding can forward to a directory, even on a file. CNAME is not, this is the main difference between URL forwarding and CNAME.

3, A Record: IP pointing by the web server

A (address) Record is used to specify the IP address record corresponding to the host name (or domain name).

Description: Users can point to the website server under this domain to their own WebServer. It can also set the secondary domain name of your own domain name.

That is: through A record, you can set your own different domain names to different IP! Such as:

Www.yourname.com Go to IP321.32.321.321

FTP.YOONAME.COM Go to IP123.12.123.123

Mail.Yourname.com Go to IP213.21.213.213

4, MX Record (MAILEXCHANGE): Mail Routing Record

Description: Users can point to the mail server under this domain to your MilServer, and then you can control all mailbox settings. You only need to fill in the host name or host IP address of your server online, you can transfer all the mails from your domain to you set up your own mail server. That is to separate your domain name, set it to other IP!

For example, it is OURWORDS.CN, if you set a record to point 123.12.123.123, and MX record you set to 222.22.222.222, then your DNS server receives its request to explain its request Go to 222.22.222.222! It is still accessing 123.12.123.123 when others visit your webpage.

5. NS (NAMESERVER) Record is a domain name server record to specify which DNS server is parsed by this domain name.

How to view a Domain A record, MX record, CNAME record, and NS record

So how can I find the domain’s A record, to query the MX record of domain names, CNAME records, or NS records, and use nslookup commands. Nslookup is a command that comes with WindowsNT / 2000 / XP and UNIX, Linux and other operating systems. (Nothing in Windows98 / ME).

Enter nslookup in the Windows DOS Command Line window, or Unix / Linux command. “Default Server” and “Address” are the DNS server domain name and address used in the current Internet. “>” Is NSlookup prompt. Enter “?” And enter the prompt, you can see the help information of Nslookup, enter “exit” and enter the NSLookup. At this time, the domain name is directly input directly to the prompt, and the A record of the domain name can be checked. E.g:

Where “Non-Authoritativeanswer” indicates that the result is returned from the Cache of DNS.

Enter SETTYPEMX, enter the domain name, and you can query the MX record. E.g:

Enter SETTYPECNAME, then enter the domain name, you can query the CNAME record. E.g:

Enter SETTYPENS, enter the domain name, and query the NS record. E.g:

If you apply for a dynamic resolution service of a top-level domain name or a separate domain name, after your domain registrar is set to the DNS server of the domain name service provider, you can use this way to query whether settings have taken effect.

The above operations are queried from the default DNS server. If you want to specify the DNS server used by the query, you can keep up with the address of a domain name server when entering the domain name. This query method applies to all records. If you apply for a top domain name or a separate domain name at Wanwang, you can use this method to query your domain at Wan Net to be parsed in the NS record in your domain name registrar.
