Check your domain’s DNS records by selecting a record type or using different DNS servers.
Ensure Correct DNS Records Throughout Your Infrastructure
DNS records contain precious information about your domain environment. EasyDMARC’s DNS checker is a quick diagnostic tool that allows you to verify whether the DNS records for a domain are configured correctly.
DNS lookup can potentially prevent website downtime. Dig your DNS records and discover issues related to email functionality.
Input your domain or IP into our DNS Record Checker and verify the accuracy of the 8 most important Domain Name System (DNS) records. EasyDMARC’s DNS Record Lookup tool also allows you to use famous DNS servers during lookup for more reliable results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Look Up DNS Records For My Domain?
Use our DNS Record Lookup tool to conduct a full DNS lookup and verify that you’ve configured the correct DNS records for your domain, so you can avoid any downtime.
What Does EasyDMARC’s DNS Record Lookup Tool Do?
Our DNS Record Lookup tool retrieves the DNS records of your domain and shows them in a list. You can run a DNS lookup against well known DNS servers such as Google, Cloudflare, Quad9, or the domain's authoritative name server (SOA).
What DNS Record Types Can I Look Up?
DNS records types you can check with our DNS Record Lookup tool include A, AAAA, MX, CNAME, TXT, PTR, NS, and SOA records.
What are the Types of DNS Records?
DNS record types include the following:
The A record points a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) to an IPv4 address and acts as a translator by converting domain names to IP addresses. It can be used for pointing to both the main domain and subdomains.
The AAAA record is similar to the A record but points to an IPv6 address. IPv6 has been created due to the shortage of IPv4.
The MX record points to the mail server(s) and specifies their priority for receiving email for a domain. It should point to a mail server name and not an IP address.a
The CNAME record is an alias that points a domain or subdomain to another hostname, but never an IP address. The aliased domain directs servers to all DNS records or the target hostname. It’s commonly used to associate subdomains with an existing main domain.
Administrators can add limited human and machine-readable notes via a TXT record. It can also be used for email validation, site ownership verification, SPF, DKIM, DMARC, MTA-STS, policies, etc.
The PTR record points the IPv4 or IPv6 address to a domain name. It provides a reverse DNS record (also known as rDNS record) pointing an IP address to the domain hostname. These records require domain authority and can’t exist in the same zone as other DNS record types.
The NS record points to the name servers which have authority in managing and publishing DNS records of a given domain. These authoritative DNS servers handle any query related to that domain.
The SOA record provides essential information about the domain. It contains data on the master node of the domain authoritative nameserver, domain administrator’s email, DNS zone’s serial number, etc. It’s used to direct how a DNS zone propagates to secondary name servers.
