Hi all, I need help..
I tried change my domain to a new one..
So I delete all the CNAME, A, and NS
when I create new record, below the text input of hostname the domain is joining with the old one:
Example: old domain aaaaaa.com, my new domain bbbbbb.com, the record become aaaaa.combbbbb.com
Why this is happened? Is it because I refer @ in old record? How I can fix it?

If you created a DNS zone for aaaa.com, then deleted all the records and created a new one called bbbbb this would still be in the aaaa.com domain. You need to delete the zone itself, not just the records within it and create a new zone for the different domain.

This guide will walk you through the process.
