If you're attempting to update your DNS settings on GoDaddy to point to Podpage but encounter a "Can't edit" message for certain DNS settings, don't worry. There are a few common reasons for this issue, and we'll help you troubleshoot it:
1. Domain Forwarding is Enabled
Issue: If you have set your domain to forward to another location, this forwarding may take precedence over DNS settings.
Solution: To regain control over your DNS settings, you should turn off Domain Forwarding in your GoDaddy account. Once this is done, you should see the DNS settings become available for editing.
2. Custom Nameservers Are Configured
Issue: If you've configured custom nameservers for your domain, this can deactivate the ability to edit DNS settings through GoDaddy.
Solution: To resolve this, you should reset your nameservers to the default GoDaddy nameservers. This will allow you to regain control over DNS editing.
3. Activated a "Website" Product
Issue: If you've subscribed to a website builder feature or a similar product within GoDaddy, it might deactivate the ability to edit DNS settings.
Solution: To enable DNS editing, you should turn off the website builder or related features in your GoDaddy account. Once deactivated, you should regain access to edit your DNS settings.
