    There needs to be "EDIT" button

    Also, I can't create a CNAME record of "@" (i.e. doman name without subdomains).  How can I do that?

    e.g. I want to point abc.com CNAME cfg.com how does it work?

    Dear Customer,

     

    Thank you for your comment

     

    There is are Save / Cancel / Delete options next to each Record which serves as an EDIT function

     

    Rather than use the @ symbol, you may use the * symbol under Host to point your naked domain to a CNAME

    I can't seem to set TXT records while keeping the exact character case.

    This is important for for e.g. DMARC records though. The DNS Management tool always transforms v=DMARC1; p=reject; into v=dmarc1; p=reject;, which is then considered an invalid DMARC policy by everyone trying to reach my site. I tried it with different browsers and event tried putting the setting into quotes, e.g. "v=DMARC1; p=reject;". I even looked at my network traffic and my browser does indeed send you the correct value, therefore, it must be the server transforming my input. I never asked for this ;-).
