[Pdns-users] How to update IP address of records

I am new to powerdns and trying to set it up based on my requirements. One
issue that I am facing is how to update an IP address for all my records?
For example, if I have 10K records that are pointing to one host/IP address
but that host goes down and I want to update to a new host ip address, do I
have to update all 10K records?
Or is there a better way to set this up? Maybe I can add 'cname' to all
these 10K records and that 'cname' could somehow resolve to an IP address
so essentially when I run the 'dig' command the end result would be the new
IP address.
Also is there a powerdns supported plugin that can be written for this to
make updates simpler?
