Hi @CaptainNightmar. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what you're asking. If you can provide a screenshot of the error you're seeing in your GoDaddy account, that may help someone in the community offer a solution. Thanks!

Re: DNS Setup Help

@CaptainNightmar I see. Looks like you want to change your primary A Record into a CNAME. That won't be possible. However, since the instructions you provided seem to want you to point your domain toward its WWW CNAME, you can do this by using domain forwarding. You just need to forward your domain toward it's WWW. For example, if your domain was exampledomain.com, you would forward it to www.exampledomain.com. Then you can update your WWW CNAME to point to server1.mistforums.com. Hope that helps.
