How do I add special DNS records?

The Members Control Panel cannot add all types of DNS records. As members request special DNS records, we should change the Control Panel to enable them. However, in the meantime, you can add special records by modifying the viewsic.mayfirst.org:/etc/tinydns/root/special-records file by hand. When you're done editing the file, you can push the records live with:

cd /etc/tinydns/root && make

If you need to add SRV records it's slightly more complicated. There's a good explanation of how to do it and a easy to use auto generator.

You only need the auto generator if, for some reason, you don't enjoy converting numbers from base-10 to base-8 manually.
