Hi this is the official guide by OVH https://docs.ovh.com/gb/en/domains/web_hosting_how_to_edit_my_dns_zone/#step-2-edit-your-domain-names-dns-zone Add a new
CNAME(Type) entry and point it to

Thanks : ) I did
RTFMthough ; )
It's just for me it's not clear if that should be the only entry or not.
Also: shouldn't the target be pages.grapedrop.com. (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
18.104.22.168to 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
