For zone "foo.tld", what's the appropriate DNS A record in the zone? foo.tld. @ (empty, no name) My ISP defaults to having an empty A record. In ISPConfig this is created with an entry in the template like this: A||111.222.333.444|0|3600 ISPConfig defaults to create the first variant with the trailing period. In ISPConfig zone maintenance, an attempt to use @ gets reset to to the zone name with the period. I have blindly added the empty name variant to all of my zones but now I'm thinking this creates a conflict. As long as ISPConfig insists on the name+period standard, I'm fine with deleting the empty version, and I don't care about the "@" override. So what is preferred? Correct? And what's the thinking in ISPConfig? Thanks!
