Why do we need a Find DNS Records tool?
We need DNS records to find the location of the website and other important information about a domain name.
What are the types of DNS Records?
There are 10 types of DNS records that tell you about the information on the domain.
- Address Mapping record (A Record)—also known as a DNS host record, stores a hostname and its corresponding IPv4 address.
- IP Version 6 Address record (AAAA Record)—stores a hostname and its corresponding IPv6 address.
- Canonical Name record (CNAME Record)—can be used to alias a hostname to another hostname.
- Mail exchanger record (MX Record)—specifies an SMTP email server for the domain, used to route outgoing emails to an email server.
- Name Server records (NS Record)—specifies that a DNS Zone, such as “example.com” is delegated to a specific Authoritative Name Server, and provides the address of the name server.
- Reverse-lookup Pointer records (PTR Record)—allows a DNS resolver to provide an IP address and receive a hostname (reverse DNS lookup).
- Certificate record (CERT Record)—stores encryption certificates—PKIX, SPKI, PGP, and so on.
- Service Location (SRV Record)—a service location record, like MX but for other communication protocols.
- Text Record (TXT Record)—typically carries machine-readable data such as opportunistic encryption, sender policy framework, DKIM, DMARC, etc.
- Start of Authority (SOA Record)—this record appears at the beginning of a DNS zone file, and indicates the Authoritative Name Server for the current DNS zone, contact details for the domain administrator, domain serial number, and information on how frequently DNS information for this zone should be refreshed.
