* Do you know what the ALIAS record is in DNS?


Suggested article from our blog: What is ALIAS Record?

CNAME points one domain name to another domain name. The ALIAS record can do it too, but it can also coexist with more records for that name. A good addition is that it can be used for the root domain too.

Here you can see an ALIAS record example!

Differences between ALIAS and CNAME:

  • Do not resolve the same way. CNAME returns host and then a new query requires the IP address.
  • ALIAS record is less limited than the CNAME record.

ClouDNS and ALIAS records

With the ALIAS record type, you can create a Round-Robin DNS load balancer between various CNAME and A records. You can combine it with different DNS record types with a small exception of CNAME and Web Redirect.
