Unintuitive form completion in DNS

If you don't put a period after your hostname when adding an MX DNS entry, it exits the field for entering a DNS entry and gives a poor error message about how the data must end with a "."

Ideally there would be validation on the hostname entry field itself, and I wouldn't lose my form contents.

    We've deployed several updates to the DNS manager that does inline validation of the input including alerting you when it believes that you mean to end the entry with a "." Thanks!
