Basic Record Types
A & AAAA Records
A and AAAA records point to the IP address that is associated with a host.
MX records will point to the hostname of the mail server that is responsible for receiving mail for a domain.
NS records tell which name server is responsible for a domain.
CNAME records reference to other records.
ALIAS records work similar to CNAME records, but allows other records to overwrite the alias.
TXT records just store plain text.
