Exclamation I have a little DNS Hostname Question

HI,

I have a little Hostname question i like to add an A record for "domain.com" and i'm not sure what to use:

Hostname / IP-Address
<blank> / 35.68.59.214
domain.com. / 35.68.59.214

They both work but what is the difference between the two?

Default

So it doesn't matter which of the 2 entries i use to make an A record because the 2 entries are the same or?

If i understand this right it would work like this:

Hostname / IP-Address
<blank> / 35.68.59.214 = If Fails GoTo:
domain.com. / 35.68.59.215 = If Fails GoTo:
domain1.com. / 35.68.59.216 = If Fails GoTo:
...
