What are A records?

← All Topics
Table of Contents

Address or A records (also known as host records) are the central records of DNS. These records link a domain to an IP address.

For instance, yourdomain.com has an A record that points to 68.178.232.100. This means that all traffic to yourdomain.com will be directed to the server with IP address 68.178.232.100.

The value of an A record is always an IP address, and multiple A records can be configured for one domain name.
