Hi @skykingit,

 

Only an A Record will have "@" as the host name in order to direct to an IP address. A CName is usually "www" or other subdomain. It will map a name to another name. Then it will often "point to" the @ record in the A Record space. It should only be used when there are no other records on that name. What action are you trying to take on the domain? Where are you trying to direct it?
