RP - Responsible Person

Return to FAQ/Help System menu

An RP-record specifies the mailbox of the person responsible for the host (domain name).

A SOA-record defines the responsible person for an entire zone, but a zone may contain a large number of individual hosts / domain names for which different people are assigned responsibility. The RP-record type makes it possible to identify the responsible person for individual domain names contained within the zone.

To specify the "mailbox", replace the email address @ sign with a dot (.).

Optionally specify the domain name for a TXT-record with additional information (such as phone and address).

You can use the RP-record in the Raw form only on our servers. The format in which to enter the data is as follows:

Raw form:
@ 43200 RP hostmaster.domain.com. txt.domain.com.

Where '@' is the root zone, 43200 is the TTL, hostmaster.domain.com is the responsible person's email address and txt.domain.com is the record to lookup for the TXT-record on the domain.
