Common DNS Record Types:

A Record (Address Record):

The A record maps a domain name to the IP address of the server hosting the domain. It specifies the IP address where the website is hosted. For example, example.com might have an A record pointing to192.0.2.1.

CNAME Record (Canonical Name Record):

The CNAME record is used to alias one domain name to another. It is commonly used when a domain name needs to point to another domain name instead of an IP address. For example, www.example.com might have a CNAME record pointing to example.com.

TXT Record (Text Record):

The TXT record is used to store arbitrary text data associated with a domain. It can be used for various purposes such as verifying domain ownership, SPF records for email authentication, or providing additional information about the domain. For example, TXT records might contain SPF information like"v=spf1 include:_spf.example.com ~all".

SOA Record (Start of Authority Record):

The SOA record specifies authoritative information about a DNS zone, including the primary name server, the email of the domain administrator, the domain serial number, and various timers relating to refreshing the zone. It is essential for the proper functioning of a DNS zone.

MX Record (Mail Exchange Record):

The MX record specifies the mail server responsible for receiving email on behalf of a domain. It points to the domain's mail server(s) where incoming emails should be delivered. For example, example.com might have an MX record pointing to mail.example.com.

NS Record (Name Server Record):

The NS record specifies the authoritative name servers for a domain. It indicates which DNS servers are responsible for a particular domain. For example, example.com might have NS records pointing tons1.example.com and ns2.example.com.
