Create a list of all of the different types of DNS records. Each one has to include very specific information, including instances from the actual world as well as an explanation of why it is utilized. It would be convenient if the web server and mail server could share an alias for their hostname, but is this even possible?
Describe the various DNS record types and present examples.

A History is a list of IP addresses that must be matched.
When a domain is marked as an A record, the network can establish its location immediately.

The CNAME property is replaced with the alias name.
