Cannot restore DNS default



I tried to use surge hosting with my goDaddy domain, but editing the dns records I have messed up everything and now it is unreachable. This is the record that I have at the moment:

There is some way to reset the default value? I tried every page on goDaddy but I can't do that.

Hi @LucaFilipponi

There is not a way to automatically reset your domain's DNS records. The easiest way to get your default records back is by switching your domain's nameservers from 'standard' to 'custom' then back to 'standard'.

Hi. I tried to change it to custom, but it requests for a pair of other dns and is not accepting a random value.

Hi @Pereere,


Welcome to the Community! 

If you are still needing to go back to the default settings on your DNS, you can keep the existing nameserver and  return the records to the following defaults: 


A        *        <<Your server's IP        600 seconds

A        admin        Your server's IP        600 seconds

A        mail        Your server's IP        600 seconds

CNAME        autoconfig                @        1 Hour

CNAME        autoconfig.admin        @        1 Hour

CNAME        autodiscover                @        1 Hour

CNAME        autodiscover.admin        @        1 Hour

CNAME        cpanel                        @        1 Hour
