I'd like to set a domain's root name to a CNAME instead of the usual A record.
Here's a perfect example of what I'm trying to do:
Notice the answer section:
;; ANSWER SECTION: lrnskls.com. 300 IN CNAME partner.adjix.com. partner.adjix.com. 300 IN A 126.96.36.199
The reason I'm trying to do this is so I can point a domain's root name, via a CNAME alias, to Amazon's S3. Using an A record doesn't work because S3's IPs change every few minutes for load balancing purposes.
PS - This seems to be legal under section 3.6.2 of RFC 1034 (note the USC-ISIC.ARPA example): http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1034.html
