DNS Only: what records are available


#1

I have a free domain registration available on my account, so I thought I might create a domain name on DH to use for my VPS hosted elsewhere, and use DNS Only to point to my VPS.

I can’t find any information on exactly what records are available for DNS Only. From searching here and on google, I get the impression you can only create A and MX, What about sub-domains, AAAA, CNAME, etc?

If I can’t set those extra records up, I’ll have to run a DNS server on my VPS, which I don’t particularly want to do.

I suppose the alternative is to set it up as a fully-hosted domain, then change it the next day and point all the records to the VPS. Bit of a pain for me and for DH, though.

Thanks for any help.

You can make A, MX, AAAA, CNAME, TXT, NS, SRV and subdomains.
