Delete DNS records
If you no longer need a DNS record on your domain, you can delete it from your DNS zone file at any time. Deleting records will completely remove them from your zone file and they can't be recovered. Make sure you double check your settings before deleting records, and consider copying existing record details before deleting them.
Deleting DNS records could cause connected services, like your website or email address, to stop working properly.
