Default DNS Wizard Template

I want to add ftp.mysite.com to my DNS template.

I've tried this and it works:
Code:
[ZONE]
origin={DOMAIN}.
ns={NS1}.
mbox={EMAIL}.
refresh=28800
retry=7200
expire=604800
minimum=86400
ttl=86400

[DNS_RECORDS]
A|{DOMAIN}.|{IP}|0|86400
A|www|{IP}|0|86400
A|mail|{IP}|0|86400
A|ftp|{IP}|0|86400
NS|{DOMAIN}.|{NS1}.|0|86400
NS|{DOMAIN}.|{NS2}.|0|86400
MX|{DOMAIN}.|mail.{DOMAIN}.|10|86400
As you can see I've made and A record to achieve this. Is this the correct way or should a CNAME be used instead?

Thats up to you. I would use a A-Record as you did.

Thanks till. I'm a little unsure on which occasions to use which though. If you or someone else can explain please.
