PARKED A Record magically appeared and parked my domain

This morning an A record magically appeared and parked my domain.

a 	@ 	PARKED 	600 seconds

 

We did not create this record.  This record was not there previously.  Has anyone seen this happen before and know why/how?

 

Is there some combination of services or changes that could trigger an event like this? 

 

This is a pretty serious issue.  It redirected a large amount of traffic to a go daddy page for no apparent reason.

 

thanks.

myles.

This is typically caused by the cancellation / expiration of a service (Server / WordPress / Websites + Marketing) which was linked with the domain - GoDaddy automatically updates the IP address so that it goes to a parked page rather than a not found link
