A - Host Address

The A-record is the most basic and the most important DNS record type.

They are used to translate human friendly domain names such as "www.clickit.no" into IP-addresses such as (machine friendly numbers).

A-records are the DNS server equivalent of the hosts file - a simple domain name to IP-address mapping.

You can use the A-record in the normal form or the raw form on our servers. The format in which to enter the data is as follows:

Standard form:
www A
@    A

Raw form:
www 43200 A
@    43200 A

Where 'www' is a subdomain and '@' is the root zone name. 43200 is the TTL in seconds.
