Hey @vibug. Welcome to GoDaddy Community!


That sounds like a strange issue. If you're domain's DNS is hosted outside of our system, it's possible that the DNS changes that occurred when you created your address (the creation of the record for hasn't yet propagated to the point that your DNS provider is able to resolve it. That would be my guess, since the error you're receiving seems to be regarding the resolution of the record destination. I'd recommend double checking with your DNS provider to see if that could be the problem.
