Help with Host Records


DNS records translate meaningful domain names into IP addresses used to identify the actual location of devices on the Internet. These host records can be used to direct your domain name to your web server’s IP address (via A or AAAA records) or specify which servers handle email delivery for your domain (via MX records) for example. See below for a full list of supported record types:

A (Address) Record

An A record tells a DNS server what specific IP address to map for a host name. It is the most common type of DNS record. An A record is typically used to direct your domain name, for example www.yourname.com, to a web server.

Example A record format: 98.124.253.253

AAAA (IPv6 Address) Record

An AAAA (or "quad-A"
