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 /etc/tinydns/root/special-records file by hand.

This file lives on a.ns.mayfirst.org (currently viewsic.mayfirst.org).

If you need to SRV records it's a real pain. 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 binary and then to base-8 manually.
