Did GoDaddy make this chance to my DNS record?

Wordfence just reported to me that a change was made to my DNS record. This is the change.

 

Old DNS records: dc-819484f2-mx.davidgeer.com
New DNS records: dc-85d74aac01eb.davidgeer.com

 

Did GoDaddy make this change?

Hey @geercom,

 

First let me say welcome to the community! Smiley Happy

 

Afraid I don't recognize the changes made as that's not a default record any of our automated updates would ever use. Chances are likely this was not a change we made within our automated system.

 

Did anyone else have access to your account? You might check with any who do as the changes were possibly made by them.

There are multiple types of DNS records, such as NS, A and MX. What type of DNS record is that from?

 

Also, where is the domain registered and where do you see the DNS record?

Looking at your MX Records I see the Main Domain is davidgeer.com and the SOA and NS Records show the domain's DNS is hosted with Cloudflare. If that is the case then Godaddy would not be able to change the MX Record. 

 

"dig davidgeer.com MX" shows the current MX Record is 

;; ANSWER SECTION:
davidgeer.com. 299 IN MX 30 mx.powweb.com.

 

both mx.powweb.com and dc-85d74aac01eb.davidgeer.com have an IP Address within the same Subnet and appear to belong to the same company Powweb.

 

From what I'm seeing there doesn't appear to be any changes to your MX Record and depending on how Wordfence does DNS Checks does not appear to be something you should worry about.
