Hi there, I'm just writing to get some help with setting up my GoDaddy domain with GitHub User Pages. I'd previously linked my GoDaddy domain with Squarespace. To do this I customised the DNS records (and probably some other settings) to forward to Squarespace. The problem is this was a couple of years ago, and now when I go to Manage DNS I can't remember which settings are custom, and which should always be there by default. In the meantime I've de-linked my domain from the Squarespace account. I've also followed GitHub's guide (https://help.github.com/articles/setting-up-an-apex-domain/) and added four new A Records to the DNS settings: 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 ...and it works (i.e. typing in the domain in the browser loads the GitHub pages content). So I must have done something right! However It doesn't look like there's a way to 'wipe' the Squarespace changes and start fresh, so I'm a bit concerned there's a mishmash of Squarespace and GitHub changes in my DNS Settings. E.g. when I enter dig [domain] into my terminal, I'm getting an extra 'fifth' IP address ( 22.214.171.124). So basically, I want to clear up my DNS Settings so they're properly set up for GitHub, and nothing else. Some particular issues I'm concerned about: 1: In the Manage DNS settings there is an A record which I can't delete. I think this might have been from the previous Squarespace settings but I can't be sure. Type: A Name: @ Value: Forwarded TTL: 600 seconds 2: W hen I enter dig [domain] into my terminal, I'm getting an extra 'fifth' IP address: 126.96.36.199. Should this be there? 3: There are also two Nameservers set up: ns05.domaincontrol.com and ns06.domaincontrol.com. Do these still need to be there? 4: There are a lot of other CNAME, MX, NS, SOA and TXT records I don't recognise. (Some I do recognise from setting up Gmail to handle email for my domain.) Thanks very much in advance for your help!
