How does Pinger Man monitor DNS?

Pinger Man can monitor public DNS servers and query them for the records you want to monitor. You can query for A, AAAA, CNAME, DNSKEY, DS, MX, NS, PTR, SOA, SRV, and TXT records.

Pinger Man ensures that the records are valid and that the values match with the ones you are expecting. Alerts are sent when the DNS lookup fails or when the values change.
