Zone file organize the zone record for domain names and subdomains in a DNS server. The most common records contained in a zone file are start of authority (SOA), nameserver, mail exchange, host and CNAME.

  • Start of Authority (SOA) - Required for every zone record, t contains caching information, the zone administrator’s email address and the master name server for the zone. SOA also contains a number incremented with each update. As this number updates, it triggers the DNS to reload the zone data. 
  • Name Server (NS) - It contains the name server information for the zone. 
  • Mail Exchange (MX) -  The MX record provides the mail server information for that zone to deliver email to the correct location. 
  • Host (A) - Uses the A record to map an IP address to a host name.  
  • Canonical Name (CNAME) - It is a alias for a host. 
  • Text (TXT) - This is an informational record. Use it for additional information about a host or for technical information to servers. 
  • Service Records (SRV) - They are resource records used to identify computers hosting specific services.
  • AAAA - AAAA records store a 128-bit Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address that does not fit the standard A record format.
