Resolution

This may be applicable to other domain service provider since mine is with GoDaddy I followed the steps below to resolved it.

Importantly, after adding your A records for your website’s IP address make sure to remove the entry for another record for “Park”, otherwise the you’ll be broadcasting two records (depending on the load balancer) and a redirection to your web server or GoDaddy’s Domain Broker Service Ads as a result.

  2. Select your domain name from the list to access the Domain Settings page.
  3. Scroll down to Additional Settings and select Manage DNS.
  4. On the DNS Management page, next to the record you wish to delete (in our case is the A record with “Parked” value), click the pencil icon.
  5. To the right of the entry fields, select the trash can icon.
  6. Confirm deletion by selecting Delete in the new window.
  7. Confirm the DNS propagation using this link and check for multiple A record entry.

In conclusion, you will know that your redirection issue is resolved once you no longer see multiple A record entries for your domain except for your website’s IP address.
