DNS Records [A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, SRV and TXT]

There are several different types of DNS records in a domain’s zone file which are A, AAAA, CNAME (Canonical Name Record), MX (mail server), SRV (Service Record), and TXT (Text Record) records. These DNS can be created and modified through the cPanel (if the domain is hosted with Vodien which is also applicable to subdomain names) or through the Billing Client Area (if the domain name is registered and using Vodien’s name servers).
