Hey can you tell me what the nameserver in the soa record is for?
name ttl class rr name-server email-addr (sn ref ret ex min) example.com. IN SOA **ns.example.com** (this nameserver). hostmaster.example.com. ( 2003080800 ; sn = serial number 172800 ; ref = refresh = 2d 900 ; ret = update retry = 15m 1209600 ; ex = expiry = 2w 3600 ; min = minimum = 1h ) ; the following are also valid using @ and blank @ IN SOA ns.example.com. hostmaster.example.com. ( IN SOA ns.example.com. hostmaster.example.com. (
so if I were to add 5 nameservers, and I put the first nameserver on soa, and this server was not working will the user go to the next nameserver?
