Hi, possibly missing something very basic, but I’m trying to paste my A records into Google Domains and it’s returning “Record already in use” despite also saying “No custom resource records set up yet.” Website is tomnoonanmusic.com , screenshot attached below.
Never mind, they were hiding in “synthetic records”. Solved.
Wow Reading this actually helped me find it too!
Something so simple…
Thank you, good sir! I registered for these forums just to mention that this was my problem as well, and upon deleting the Synthetic records, I was able to add my new MX records ツ
Saved my day!
I ummm still kind of can’t figure this one out. Can somebody explain a little further?
edit: Wowwzers. Got it. Okay you just add both at once instead of individually.
Thank you @superfully.
The hero I needed.
Are you freakin’ kidding me?! That simple?! But Man O Man did you save my day… and night… and yet another day! Thank you kind Sir. You deserve a monument to your name… Well, a little monument but still. It will have your name on it! Cheers.
Thank you so much! You totally made my day. Thanks again.
Okay you just add both at once instead of individually.
is the right answer!
So do I just delete the synthetic record “Connect to domains widget” and then add them using the custom resource records section? see attached
That’s what I did, and it worked. Delete the “Domain Widget”, under synthetic records and plug in the info into the custom resource records from your hosting tab.
for anyone else still confused as I was, Google Domains does not work like godaddy or any other system where you add multiple A records by hitting the ‘add’ button. You actually have to hit ‘edit’ next to the existing @ A record and then there’s a little plus icon next to it where you can add more records. – such horrible UI - geez Google get your sh*t together
