A record

A domain A record is essentially the location of your website’s hosting server on the Internet.

The A record refers to the IP address of the web server that hosts the page.
You can find your Zone server IP address here.

When you visit a website from the Internet, the domain name communicates with the IP address (in technical language, name extension) in the background. This connection locates the correct server, a request is sent to the server, and as a result your website is displayed to the visitor.

If necessary, you can change the A record of a domain that uses name servers in the Zone via domain management in the “DNS records” section.

Other services that operate on your domain are also identified by A records, such as your mail server or FTP server.
