    Which DNS record associates a host to an IP address?

    Hello Faizan2406,

    A Records: Also known as an address record, this type of DNS record simply associates a domain name with a specific IP address.
    This is what tells internet traffic where to go in order to access a given domain name.

      Hello Faizan2406,

      Address Mapping record (A Record)—also known as a DNS host record, stores a hostname and its corresponding IPv4 address.
      The "A" stands for "address" and this is the most fundamental type of DNS record: it indicates the IP address of a given domain. For example, if you pull the DNS records of cloudflare.com, the A record currently returns an IP address of: 104.17. 210.9. A record only holds IPv4 addresses.
