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


Suggested article from our blog: What is ALIAS Record?

The ALIAS record and the CNAME record can both map domain names to other domain names (canonical names). The difference is in how they do it. The ALIAS record can do it far faster and return an answer like an A or AAAA record. This makes it useful even for the root domain.

Here you can see an ALIAS record example!

Differences between ALIAS and CNAME:

  • Resolving of ALIAS record is a lot faster than the CNAME record.
  • ALIAS record has more use, in comparison with the CNAME record.
