DNS (Domain Name Service) is the component of the Internet that converts human-readable domain names (for example, example.com) into computer-readable IP addresses (for example, 126.96.36.199). DNS uses zone files that reside on your server to map domain names to IP addresses.
There are several different types of records in a domain’s zone file. This feature allows you to create, edit, and delete A, AAAA, CNAME (Canonical Name Record), SRV (Service Record), and TXT (Text Record) records.
Note: The Advanced Zone Editor has been replaced by the DNS Zone editor in newer versions of cPanel. You can find a guide to the new DNS Zone Editor here.
