Finally, we support additional record type used behind the scenes to provide various DNS features:
- We automatically create the SOA record for you when you add a domain.
- We create
DNSKEYrecords when you enable DNSSEC on a domain
CAA records are only supported on the DNSimple primary name servers (ns1.dnsimple.com through ns4.dnsimple.com). We currently do not support transferring CAA records to secondary name servers.
