I purchased a domain and signed up for the register's DNS Management service. In their default configuration, they included an entry for localhost:
localhost 14400 A 127.0.0.1
What is the point of this entry? Is it safe to delete it?
UPDATE I should clarify that I am familiar with the common roles that "localhost" and 127.0.0.1 play in networking. I'm mainly curious about what this entry does in a DNS record.
