My website is running on Netlify. I want to move it to a subdomain (still on Netlify) and point the main domain to an IP address outside of Netlify. To my surprise, after deleting the Netlify domain for my site, I got the error A: 400 - link exists, all config must be empty when trying to add the A record. After reading this thread I found that the NETLIFY records can not be deleted by normal users, even if are not visible anymore in the DNS section after removing the domain from the site.
In order to avoid downtime for my app, I need to make some adjustments before pointing to the new IP. What can be done?
