Save a specific order of A records for same host


New Member
Hi there,

I am setting up a round robin DNS records and when I enter something like A A

it gets saved automatically in alphanumeric order as A A

Is there any way to specify the order of the IP addresses ?

Hello. The order it is saved in cannot be modified. Round robin DNS does not go to the first server, then the next server, and so on. It is random.

Hi El.
Thats a shame you cannot specify order. My understanding and all documentation points to Round robin DNS grabbing the first IP number, then second and so forth, not random. Which would make more sense as you would want control of how the load of the incoming traffic is balanced not a random lottery.
