Thanks for posting. I'm not quite understanding your issue, perhaps you can provide the details of the record you are trying to add for others in the community to be able to provide suggestions. Thanks!
I'm sorry that I was not clear. I will try to elaborate.
I'm trying to add a txt record to my domain lsacam.com. I do this by going to My Domains > Domain Management > Add. In the Host field I add a value called "_acme-challenge.cam.lsacam.com" and in the TXT Value field I add a value called "YxnxHMWxx0564IycsxLT44xb307zPoz2W3sYo58v1tw" which is a challenge associated with using Lets Encrypt as a CA (domain validation method, see https://serverfault.com/questions/879647/renew-domains-using-certbot-and-using-dns-challenge). Note that value above is generated by the certbot tool and will be different from run to run.
I poll to see when the record gets updated by the following using the linux command "dig -t txt cam.lsacam.com". But even after days it does not get added.
However if I use "@" instead of "_acme-challenge.cam.lsacam.com" as the Host value then I see the TXT record get added after the TTL period. However Lets Encrypt for what ever reason fails with that. It must need the "_acme-challenge.cam.lsacam.com" Host name and indeed this is how I got it to work before (about 3 months ago).
