What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain Name System. DNS (Domain Name System) is the largest database of information about every website on the internet. Domain Name System translates domain names into IP addresses. Domain names are easier to remember, but the internet is based on IP addresses. Every website has an IP address that is its internet location.
What are DNS records? How does it work?
To resolve names/network resources in any environment you need a DNS system to process it. When someone visits a web site, a request is sent to the DNS server and then forwarded to the web server provided by a web hosting company, which contain the data contained on the site. Various strings of letters are used as commands that dictate the actions of the DNS server, and these strings of commands are called DNS syntax. Some DNS records syntax that are commonly used in nearly all DNS record configurations are A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, PTR, NS, SOA, SRV and TXT.
About Find DNS records Tool
This tool will list DNS records for a domain in priority order. The DNS lookup is done directly against the domain's authoritative name server, so changes to DNS Records should show up instantly. By default, the DNS lookup tool will return an IP address if you give it a name (e.g. www.example.com)
Why using DNS Records Tool?
The DNS records tool helps to diagnose problems with a domain’s name servers. If the normal lookup of a domain isn’t working, it can help to find the cause.
This advanced tool lets you choose the DNS server to query and the type of records to request. If the regular tool doesn’t return a result, using the advanced tool with a different server may work better. It also lets you check if different servers are reporting consistent and up-to-date information.
