Resource record types:

An A or Address record links a domain to an IP address.

MX record (Mail Exchanger record) – it is a type of DNS resource record that defines a mail server to handle email for a particular domain name.

CNAME Record is a resource record to define that a domain name is an alias for another domain name.

A Service record (SRV record) is a specification of data in the Domain Name System defining the location, i.e. the hostname and port number, of servers for specified services. It is defined in RFC 2782.

A TXT record most commonly is used to verify whether an email is actually originating from a domain name, and whether or not to trust that mail. TXT records can have SPF records which is abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework record which is used by email service providers to verify that an email message is actually coming from the same domain as it claims.
TXT records are also used to have a DKIM (Domain Key Identified Mail) record. This record adds an encrypted key in outgoing mail which allows recipient mail servers to see the originating server and whether or not to trust the message.

A Name Server keeps record of your domain name’s DNS entries.
