DNS update issue. trying to add A records and getting the following message

Following are my domain details

  • in4malssociety.netlify.app
  • My custom domain is in4malssociety.tech
  • dns_api in4malssociety.tech - in4malssociety.tech/A: 400 - link exists, all config must be empty

I am getting the error when I try to update the A record for my DNS.

Hi @vineetvishnu

If you are using Netlify DNS, you have no need for an A record for your domain, unless you are creating a record to points to a non-Netlify resource (e.g. blog.example.com).

I do see that while you have configured your domain to use Netlify DNS, there are also other nameservers showing which will likely cause problems
