You have to put in a domain name in your zone file, viz:
@ IN A 18.104.22.168
You can NOT put in a CNAME like this
@ IN CNAME www.dogsass.com.
because RFC 1034 sec 3.6.2 states:
If a CNAME RR is present at a node, no other data should be
present; this ensures that the data for a canonical name and its aliases
cannot be different.
and you have SOA and NS records (at minimum, and probably an MX record
there too for good measure) at that node.
hope this helps!
