ALIAS Record

ALIAS record is a type of DNS record build in the ClouDNS, which works in a similar way as the CNAME record. The ALIAS record allows you to add multiple hostnames for the same subdomain and can be used for the root domain too. This new build in our system type of DNS record gives you a chance to make a Round-Robin DNS between multiple CNAME and A records. All added ALIAS records are updated by our system in a short period of time and when you make a DNS request at the hostname with such record, you will receive an answer with a pure A or/and AAAA records. This type of DNS record can be added and managed from our control panel or via the HTTP API.

The ALIAS record has the following look in your ClouDNS Control Panel:
