What are SOA records, and what are the requirements for .DE-domains?

 

Name Server: SOA Records

 
SOA stands for "Start of Authority".
A SOA record is the part of a DNS zone containing the email of the responsible person of the zone, and various synchronization parameters used by the different name servers of the zone.
Requests to register or update .DE domains must contain SOA values in the following ranges:
