ALIAS records now respect the TTL

Anthony Eden's profile picture Anthony Eden on

This is just a quick note to everyone using ALIAS records. All ALIAS records will now respect their TTL value set at DNSimple. The default TTL is 1 hour but you can change it to a lower value if you would like.

This is different than the previous setup where the TTL was pulled from the resolved A records. Given that records should have a consistent TTL across all authoritative name servers the new configuration is both more accurate and provides better control to you.

I break things so Simone continues to have plenty to do. I occasionally have useful ideas, like building a domain and DNS provider that doesn't suck.

We think domain management should be easy.
That's why we continue building DNSimple.
