DNS Records (NS, A, MX, CNAME, SPF) Explained!

Your domain name has a DNS zone which consists of the following records:

  • NS - specifies which are the DNS servers for your domain;
  • A - specifies IP addresses corresponding to your domain and its subdomains;
  • MX - specifies where the emails for your domain should be delivered;
  • CNAME - specifies redirects from your domain's subdomains to other domains / subdomains;
  • SPF - Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an attempt to control forged e-mail.
