DNS records and types you didn’t know about

DNS records are an important part of internet. It is from DNS records that DNS servers know which domain is associated with what IP address. To simplify, we can turn to an analogy: your home address has coordinates that helps locate them in GPS. Since nobody can really remember that string of number precisely, you would tell them your street name and number. The same concept exists with domains and IP addresses, domains being street names and numbers, IP addresses being longitude points.
