I just purchased a domain with crazy domains. I'm trying to figure out if I need to pay for the advanced DNS services.
There is an option to set host records. As a test, I tried redirecting it to Google, but it doesn't appear to work at the moment.
This is where I entered the host record information. It says that I need to pay for hosted DNS if I want an A record or CNAME record. From memory, these are what I used in the past to redirect to the IP address of my website.
So can anyone explain what exactly these host records are and why the don't need a server, but the other kinds of records do? Further, why do these records appear to only let me redirect subdomains, but not the actual subdomain itself?
