When I create a DNS record for website "www.website.com", is it necessary to create a record for "website.com" first?

1 Answer 1


You have to have NS and SOA records for website.com. You don't technically have to have an A record, but I would recommend that you do.

  • Pardon me for my lack of knowledge. Do I need to specify an IP address for an SOA record?
