I have a domain hosted with, i have the following values in the DNS records:

A (Host)

CNAME (Alias)
www -> @
testing -> balanced

"www" works fine but there is no response from the "testing" record.

Anyone knows if I have to make another change some place in the  Zone File page?

    Open the ticket on godaddy control panel & also chat with technical person of godaddy.

    My suggestion is to change the hosting from godaddy.

    Host your domain or website to the different company.
