How to publish GPS coordinates for your domain name

You can specify GPS coordinates (latitude / longitude) for your domain name using a DNS LOC-record (RFC1876).

First use a GPS receiver to figure out your coordinates, or use http://www.simpledns.com/find-loc.aspx

To add a LOC-record in Simple DNS Plus, in the main window click the "Records" button:

Then right-click on the zone name in the left list, and from the popup menu select "Other new record" and then "LOC-record":

Enter your coordinates. For most purposes you can just enter Latitude and Longitude and leave the other fields at their default values:
