  8. Create DNS Record Window

    Type
    Choose the Type:
    A record
    An A record maps a domain name to the IP address (Version 4) of the computer hosting the domain.
    An A record uses a domain name to find the IP address of a computer connected to the internet
    AAAA record
    It maps a domain name to the IP address (Version 6) of the computer hosting the domain.
    The AAAA record is conceptually similar to the A record, but it allows you to specify the IPv6 address of the server, rather than the IPv4.
    CAA record
    A Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) is a DNS record type that allows a domain name owner to specify the preferred CAs for issuing certificates to that domain. When specified other CAs will not be able to issue certificates for that domain name.
    CNAME
    A type of record that also adds a prefix to your domain name and is sometimes referred to as a type of subdomain.
    A CNAME can’t point to an IP address. It can only point to another domain name or URL address.
    SRV
    An SRV record provides information about available services on specific ports on your server. In other words, it specifies how a domain handles particular services. For example, you may need to add an SRV record to your domain when configuring a third-party service, such as Microsoft Office 365.

    Name
    – type the name.
    TTL
    – type the TTL (time to live) value, or accept the default value.
    Address
    – type the IP address.

    Click the Create button.
