In this video, Chaim Krause breaches the topic of start of authority. This is the most important record in a domain's zone file. It tends to be the most complex portion of the zone configuration file.
- [Instructor] SOA stands for Start of Authority.…It's the most important entry in a zone file…and it is also the most complex.…An SOA record is often relatively quite long…and it's most usually broken up…over several lines to be more readable.…The SOA records starts with the name of the zone.…But in practice, you will often see the @ sign used.…Using the @ sign, means to substitute the current value…of dollar sign origin, which is…usually given in the line before the SOA.…
Next is the TTO. Often there is no TTO,…as it uses the previously defined default TTO.…Next is the class, which for all intents and purposes,…is IN for the internet. There are others,…but they are very rarely used.…The next letters, SOA, are used to identify it…as the start of authority record.…Then the primary master name server for the zone.…This is usually a fully qualified domain name.…
Next comes the administrative email address for the zone.…It is recommended that you use hostmaster as the…email address, but any valid email address is acceptable.…
