DNS Records

DNS (Domain Name System) records are essentially instructions stored on DNS servers that guide internet navigation by translating human-readable domain names into IP addresses that computers use to identify each other on the network. There are various types of DNS records, such as A records for IP addresses, MX records for mail servers, and CNAME records for aliasing domain names. These records are vital for the proper functioning of the internet, allowing users to access websites using domain names rather than complex numeric IP addresses.
