Cannot add A Record to Using Digital Ocean DNS
I am not been able to add an A Record to my domain managed by DNS. It has worked in the past through DigitalOcean where I add a hostname and an external IP so the URL directs to that IP; however, today when I try to fill it out and submit a new A Record I get the error that “Data can’t be blank” and “IP address did not match the IPv4 format (eg. 127.0.0.1)” I am sure that I am entering in a hostname and providing the IP address in the correct format. Is there an issue with DigitalOcean’s web gui? Is there another way for me to add the A record?
