SoftLayer_Dns_Domain_ResourceRecord_AaaaType

Overview

SoftLayer_Dns_Domain_ResourceRecord_AaaaType is a SoftLayer_Dns_Domain_ResourceRecord object whose type property is set to "aaaa" and defines a DNS AAAA record on a SoftLayer hosted domain. An AAAA record directs a host name to an IPv6 address. For instance if the AAAA record for "host.example.org" points to the IPv6 address "fe80:0:0:0:0:0:a00:0" then the host property for the AAAA record equals "host" and the data property equals "fe80:0:0:0:0:0:a00:0".

Local Properties

Type:

string

domainId

An identifier belonging to the domain that a resource record is associated with.

Type:

integer

expire

The amount of time in seconds that a secondary name server (or servers) will hold a zone before it is no longer considered authoritative.

minimum

The amount of time in seconds that a domain's resource records are valid. This is also known as a minimum TTL, and can be overridden by an individual resource record's TTL.

Type:

integer

mxPriority

Useful in cases where a domain has more than one mail exchanger, the priority property is the priority of the MTA that delivers mail for a domain. A lower number denotes a higher priority, and mail will attempt to deliver through that MTA before moving to lower priority mail servers. Priority is defaulted to 10 upon resource record creation.

Type:

integer

refresh

The amount of time in seconds that a secondary name server should wait to check for a new copy of a DNS zone from the domain's primary name server. If a zone file has changed then the secondary DNS server will update it's copy of the zone to match the primary DNS server's zone.

Type:

integer

responsiblePerson

The email address of the person responsible for a domain, with the "@" replaced with a ".". For instance, if root@example.org is responsible for example.org, then example.org's SOA responsibility is "root.example.org.".

Type:

integer

ttl

The Time To Live value of a resource record, measured in seconds. TTL is used by a name server to determine how long to cache a resource record. An SOA record's TTL value defines the domain's overall TTL.
