Thanks : ) I did RTFM though ; )
It's just for me it's not clear if that should be the only entry or not.
Also: shouldn't the target be (with point at the end, as per the guide - here the 'code' doesn't show correctly).
i'm getting thrown Error when adding the entry to the DNS zone. (A CNAME RR for a root record is not allowed)
just getting errors thrown at me for anything i try. i'll take it up with OVH support.

That's quite strange they don't allow CNAME for root records, it should be supported by all major providers. You can eventually point an A record to to make it work but I'd NOT recommend that. It's more likely that the IP changes than the hostname.
Note: yes, the target domain, should contain the point at the end but generally, all the DNS managers add it automatically
