DNS means Domain Name System. It’s the largest digital database for the Internet known as the DNS database. It contains records (mapping files) for about every website over the Internet. It stores the domain name of a website along with its IP address. 

When a visitor requests a particular website, the DNS database looks for its records to finds its IP address and forward it to the requesting server. Now, the web server uses the IP address to find the website and display it to the user who initiated the request. 

DNS Syntax

The ‘A’ Syntax: It’s the most basic type of syntax in a DNS record. Here, ‘A’ stands for address and indicates the IP address of the website. 

The ‘AAAA’ record: It’s an IPV6 address and maps the hostname with a 128-bit IPV6 address. 

The ‘CNAME’ record: It stands for ‘conical name.’ It is used to associate subdomains with existing DNS records. 

The ‘NS’ record: It means the ‘name server.’ It indicates the server on which the domain resides. 

The ‘SRV’ record: It indicates which TCP service is being used by the domain. 

The ‘MX’ record: It stands for mail exchange. It is used for mail exchange servers. 

The ‘SOA’ record: It holds important information about the domain such as ‘when it was last updated’ and more. 

 The ‘PTR’ record: It’s a pointer record and maps an IPV4 address with the CNAME. 

The ‘TXT’ record: It allows the web administrator to insert any text in the record. 

What is the need to look at DNS records? 

The DNS records (of any website) hold important information for webmasters and SEO professionals. They contain details of any website. For example, you can know the IP address of a domain by looking at the DNS records of that domain. When you know the structure of the IP address, you can make out in which country the domain is being hosted. DNS records also tell about the addresses of any sub-domains that are linked with the domain. You come to know when the domain was last updated, what are the refresh rate, and plenty more information. 

You can even check your competitor’s DNS records and come to know where it is being hosted as well as other information about the website. All in all, DNS records prove very helpful to webmasters and SEO professionals when they need to set or manage a website.
