Responsible Person (RP) Records (defined in RFC 1183) contain the email address of the individual in charge of a domain name. You can supplement RP records with a TXT Record if you would like to include additional details or the full contact information of your domain’s administrator.
The sole purpose of an RP record is to identify the accountable party for each hostname within a DNS zone.
1. Log into Constellix and Select Domain
Log into Constellix. Once in the dashboard, select your domain from the Recently Updated Domains list or search for the domain in the top-left search bar.
2. Expand RP Record Options
After selecting the domain that needs the RP record, you will be taken to the Records page. If you have not configured any RP records for this domain yet, click the green + icon beside the RP record to expand options, otherwise skip to step 3.
3. Add RP Record
Once options are expanded, click the green + icon to create your RP record.
4. Enter Record Values
You should now see the Add RP Record pop-up window.
Fill out the following values:
a) Name: Defines the hostname of the record and whether the hostname will be appended to the label.
b) TTL: Time to live (measured in seconds) determines how long a record is cached in nameservers.
Visit our What is TTL resource for more information and best practices for TTLs.
c) Mailbox: Email address of the individual responsible for the domain.
d) TXT: Enter the domain or subdomain name of a TXT record that contains additional information you want to include.
e) Notes: The note section lets you add important details and keywords so you can easily search for specific records later (optional, but recommended).
i) Save: If you need to add an additional RP record, tap the green Save and Continue button, otherwise, click on Save and Close.
