Adding dns A record ?


Hi everyone,

I know that we can add only ip addresses as dns A records.

But is it possible to have a name like asd.asdfghjk.com to be there besides the ip address? (If asd.asdfghjk.com) is resolvable?

No you can't. The RR A must be an IPv4 address. But you can use CNAME:
Code:
host IN CNAME asd.asdfghjk.com.

Uhh, not quite sure what your question means. If you own the domain asdfghjk.com and want the hostname to be resolvable, you would need an IP address. Otherwise, how could it be resolvable. Perhaps another example of what you mean could help me understand your question.

EDIT: Ahh, I see what he means now after Bathory's post.
