I have a CNAME record for a subdomain, called "stage". If I try to add a TXT record for the same host (stage) than I get the following error: "An unexpected error occurred. If this issue continues, contact support". I've called support but I was told that as long as I have a CNAME record with the same name I won't be able to add a TXT for it. That's clearly a Godaddy issue, because DNS just works that way.
Does anyone have encountered a similar issue? I'm having a hard time believing that I should settle with that explanation. After all, I'm just trying to validate my domain with Google Firebase transactional emails.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If a CNAME RR is present at a node, no other data should be present...
If the host (subdomain) you're trying to make use of can instead be routed to an IP address, then you can try removing the CNAME and creating an A Record for it instead. I hope that helps.
