Worldwide DNS Propagation tool

DNS stands for Domain Name System, and it is an important part of the internet, the DNS system makes possible for internet users to access the websites they are looking for by names and match it to the numbers that represent the addresses of these websites on servers (IPs).

This tool allows you to check your domains DNS settings and to see if they are working as they should. It’s pretty easy to use, all you need to do is to paste your domain and choose a record to check and our system will show you what it finds, if our system won’t find your record or not as you expected it may indicate that your records settings are not working right.

Types of DNS records

A – Most basic and commonly used, it shows the IP address behind website URLs

NS – NS-records identify the DNS servers responsible (authoritative) for a zone.

CNAME – Shows canonical name for alias. CNAME records are domain name aliases and used to map a subdomain such as www or mail to the domain hosting that subdomain’s content.

TXT – Used to hold general information about a domain name such as who is hosting it, validation codes and etc.

CAA – Allows to specify multiple certification authorities (CAs) authorized to issue certifications for that domain.

MX – These records are used to specify the email server / servers responsible for a domain name.

PTR – Records that are primarily used as “reverse records” to map IP addr to domain names.

SOA – Shows details like name of primary DNS server, email of contact person, serial number and etc.

AAAA – An AAAA record is used to specify the IPv6 address for a host (equivalent of the A record type for IPv4).

SRV – These records are used to specify the location of a service and used with different directory servers (ex. LDAP).
