Why is the canonical name/CNAME jay.com I think that is the "A" record.
points to it, not the other way around.
Could someone help me wrap my head around this?
If there was no CNAME, then we would just have jay.com
canonical name = jay.com.
-> ns jay.com
!(Again, below we have that "jay.com" is the cname. (as if it is pointing to but I think it's the other way around...
-> dig cname
; DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.30.rc1.el6_6.2 cname
