What are DNS record requirements for a registration?
Domain Registries require a minimum number of Domain Name Server records to be put in place for the registration and ongoing maintenance of a domain record. Each registry may require a different minimum number of records.
A DNS record is the address of the NameServer to which the registry directs traffic for a particular domain name. For instance, if you are registering example.co.uk as a domain name and wish to host your domain on redcentaur-hosting.co.uk's servers, you will need to have two DNS records as a minimum to register the domain and throughout its registration. The DNS records you will need are:
These need to be added to the domain name during registration and/or any time you change your hosting provider.
Each registry also has a maximum number of DNS records it will allow. In most cases, you will not need more than two DNS records.
