There is an integral part of the Internet, called the DNS or Domain Name System which helps in converting human-readable domain names, like example.com into computer-readable IP addresses, like 188.8.131.52. The zone files residing on one’s server is used by DNS in converting the domain names into IP addresses.
You can find innumerable types of records inside a domain’s zone file. It also allows in creating and deleting A and CNAME (Canonical Name) records. Note that a record’s time cannot be set to live (TTL) in this interface. Records created with the help of this interface defaults to the TTL. In order to set the TTL for a record, you can use cPanel’s Advanced Zone Editor interface (cPanel >> Home >> Domains >> Advanced Zone Editor). One can read our cPanel Deprecation Plan documentation to get more vivid details on this topic.
The ‘A’ record is a DNS record that converts the hostname into IP address, that is from a human-readable component to a computer-readable component. There are steps to add this A record.
The CNAME record helps in creating a handle for a different domain name that is looked after by the DNS. There are steps to add this CNAME record.
DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) help in adding an extra sheets of security to the domains’ DNS records. It uses digital signatures (protecting clients from deadly Spoofing or Man-in-the-middle attacks) and cryptographic keys in validating DNS responses to be authentic.
All information on DNSSEC is outlined in this review.
