GoDaddy troubleshooting

A record field displays a value of "Proxied"
If your A record field has a value of "Proxied", this is because you have a protected registration package that is preventing changes from being made to the domain settings. To fix the issue, you'll need to get to the trusted site settings page, and unpublish the trustmark.

Step 1: In a new browser window, copy and paste this URL into the navigation bar but change "mydomain.com" for your domain - click enter:
https://dcc.godaddy.com/manage/mydomain.com/settings/trustedsite

If you return to your domain management page and refresh, you should be able to now edit your A record.
