DNS Settings and Record Management

The DNS tab includes three DNS settings and DNS Record Management

DNS Settings

IPv6 Compatibility
The IPv6 compatibility makes your website accessible to any visitor regardless of IP version

Pseudo IPv4
Adds an IPv4 header to requests when a client is using IPv6, but the server only supports IPv4

DNSSEC
DNSSEC protects against forged DNS answers. DNSSEC protected zones are cryptographically signed to ensure the DNS records received are identical to the DNS records published by the domain owner.

DNS Record Management

DNS Record Management allows the creation and management of the following record types:

A, AAAA, CNAME, MS, SPF, TXT and NS

In addition to Type, Name, Value, TTL record values, Cloudflare CDN and Security services can be enabled.

We recommend the following default DNS records for most websites:

Type Name Data TTL Status
A domain.com 0.0.0.0 Automatic CF Off
A mail.domain.com 0.0.0.0 Automatic CF Off
CNAME www @ Automatic CF On
CNAME ftp @ Automatic CF Off
MX @ mail.domain.com Automatic CF Off
TXT @ v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:0.0.0.0 ~all Automatic CF Off
TXT default._domainkey "v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MI...IBIj" xhy...ek; Automatic CF Off
