Note: Some domain hosts use different labels for the name and value fields, and some hosts also require a trailing period at the end of the server name.

The Name/Host/Alias field can be blank, dot, @ or the domain name. Different hosts will have different requirements, but using the domain name is generally accepted everywhere.
