After all your settings have been updated click the green Save DNS Zone button at the top of the screen. Your settings will not save, if that button is not clicked after changes are made.

Also, ensure your domain's nameservers are set to Cosmotown's. If your domain name is not set to Cosmotown nameservers, any DNS changes made will not apply.  Please see intructions on that below

Please allow 48-72 hours for DNS changes to propagate across the internet.  Typically it is much shorter, around 24 hours.
