Negative, Captain. The record I used was an A record. A dig on the
domain was returning a single record - the A record - and was resolving
the IP address correctly.

I did at one point try a CNAME, but that didn't work either; and anyway,
I believe CNAME is deprecated for the purpose of aliasing hosts within a
single domain.
