    Hello ~ I am so confused about NS and CNAME as both of them are point to A record. May I know their differences, application and location stored in , such as TLD or authoritative ?

    im always impress how good you are with relevant content to your audience, keep up, can i ask in what cases you recommend CNAME, for me as im a performance lunatic i cant see a case where i would use CNAME unless i wanna be lazy.

    And maybe, if you have got a little time, You can make a video about DNSSEC DS rekord (inside Cloudflare, Vultr, Linode, WPX, Cloudways, Digital Ocean etc.), and HSTS. DNSSEC is very useful, against dns attacking, like spoofing, hijacking.
