Export DNS Records to Zone File

The DNS records in the "Example DNS Check" record group are shown below in zone file syntax. This syntax can be imported into many DNS servers, like BIND, and DNS hosting providers.

Depending on what records are in this DNS record group, and how your DNS service is configured, you may need to post different DNS records to different locations.

Forward DNS Records

We define "forward DNS records" as DNS records of any type other than PTR (reverse DNS). Examples of forward DNS records include A, MX and TXT records.

Forward DNS records are managed on the authoritative name server(s) for your domain.

Reverse DNS Records

Reverse DNS (PTR) records are typically managed by your hosting provider or ISP.

1.0.0.b.1.a.7.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1.0.0.0.0.8.0.0.8.8.a.4.0.6.2.ip6.arpa. PTR nyc1.dnscheck.co.

Alias DNS Records

ALIAS records are not a standard record type with a documented zone file syntax, so we list them separately.

ALIAS records are managed on the authoritative name server(s) for your domain.
