IPAM DNS records

IPAM supports five DNS record types.

A Address Mapping/Host

An A record provides the IP address of a domain.

Examples: www, mail, ftp, webmail, www2, secure, store, dev

AAAA IP Version 6 Address Returns a 128-bit IPv6 address, most commonly used to map host names to an IP address of the host.
CNAME

 

Canonical Name/Alias

CNAME records map aliases with domain names.

Example:
Record: webmail
Address: mail.hostedmail.com

MX Mail exchanger

MX records use your external mail servers to process your email.

Example:
Priority: 10
Record: @
Address: mail.domain.com

PTR Reverse-lookup Pointer

A domain name pointer maps a network interface (IP) to a host name.

Currently you cannot edit HINFO, ISDN, NS or SOA records.

Each DNS record can be customized as needed.

  • IPAM automatically detects DNS forward and reverse mismatches.
  • IPAM automatically creates DNS PTR records when new devices are added into DNS zones.
  • From this location you can manage all aspects of your domain registration. You can also change your domain name servers.
