I'm using some fictional IP addresses here, but the problem is real.
My default A Record:
* # this is for anysubdomain.example.com, I suppose @ # and this is for example.com www # this is for www.example.com
There are also these entries. What do they do in this context? My MX records are elsewhere.
mail webmail pop smtp
Now I'd like to point to my own server. Let's say that my IP is
184.108.40.206 I would then
* 220.127.116.11 @ 18.104.22.168 www 22.214.171.124
Is that correct? I read something about
* IN A 126.96.36.199 - what's that notation?
Assuming my application runs on
188.8.131.52:80, everything should be fine, right? I am new to the A records concept and I'd like to ask before changing and deconstructing my system.
