The advanced types of DNS records consist of the following:

  • A
  • AAAA
  • AFSDB
  • Cert
  • Cname
  • DNSKEY
  • DS
  • HIP
  • IPSECKEY
  • Loc
  • Mx
  • NAPTR

  • NSEC3
  • NSEC3PARAM
  • RRSIG
  • SPF
  • SRV
  • SSHFP
  • TXT

  • ALIAS

Atomia will also recognize if the end user wants to edit the DNS record, for example a www subdomain. This will cause one or more services to malfunction, and a notification is sent to the end user.

Excluding DNS record types

Any of DNS record types can be excluded from being shown in the dropdown list by setting comma-separated values for plugin setting ExcludeDNSTypes in  C:\Program Files (x86)\Atomia\HostingControlPanel\bin\Atomia.Web.Plugin.Domains.dll.config

By deleting DNS record type from the list it stops being excluded and it’s shown in the list of types.

Example:

<pluginSetting name="ExcludeDNSTypes" value="ALIAS" />

By default,  ALIAS records are excluded from being shown on Atomia User Panel. For more information on how to enable ALIAS records type in DNS visit  Atomia DNS FAQ.
