Pointer records are used to map a network interface (IP) to a host name. These are primarily used for reverse DNS.
Name: This usually represents the last octet of the IP address.
System (PTR to): This will be the value (the reverse DNS) for your host / computer within your domain.
TTL: The T [...]

These records indicate which name servers are authoritative for the zone / domain. NS Records are primarily used if you want to break your domain into subdomains. Subdomains indicate you are delegating a portion of a domain name to a different group of name servers, thus creating NS records to point [...]
MX Record (Mail Exchange Record)
These records is used by mail servers to determine where to deliver email. MX records should only map to A records (not CNAME records). If an MX record is missing for the domain the mail for the domain will normally be attempted to be delivered to the matching A [...]
CNAME Record (Canonical Name Record)
These are usually referred to as alias records since they usually map an alias to its canonical name. The name server does handle these queries differently from an A record. When a name server looks up a name and finds a CNAME record, it replaces the name with t [...]
