Is _domainconnect redirecting my website?

I have a DNS entry setup by a previous developer, it is working correctly. I am trying to understand how. I have the folowing A record: 

A@160.153.16.40

600 seconds

 

160.153.16.40 appears to be a GoDaddy server.

 

When I enter my url into a browser, I do not end up at 160.153.16.40, but correctly end up on my page on Microsoft Azure. How does this happen? There is no forwarding setup under that option in GoDaddy. 

 

I also have an entry for domain connect

CNAME_domainconnect_domainconnect.gd.domaincontrol.com1 Hour

I cannot find anything about how to control Domain Connect from GoDaddy console.

 

Before I spend hours on this, is domain connect the cause of the redirection.

Is domain connect still supported, or should I just bin it and setup the old way?

the domain connect is used for some 3rd party applications to grab MX records and things like that - So you should be able to leave it just fine.

 

In regards to the main @ record pointing to the 160. IP Address - is it possible that you have 2 IPs for your server??
