The most common DNS record types are the following:

  • A - Maps hostnames to IPv4 Addresses
  • AAAA - Maps hostnames to IPv6 Addresses
  • MX - Mail Exchange Records are used by email programs
  • NS - Name Server Records list where the DNS information is held
  • TXT - Text Records contain extra information
