Occasionally when trying to edit the DNS settings for a domain, the 1&1 Control Panel will state that the destination or DNS settings are unmodifiable as in the image below.

If the domain is assigned to or used with one of many 1&1 tools offered through the 1&1 Control Panel, the domain will be locked with this tool and changes to the domain such as its destination or DNS settings can not be changed until the domain is unassigned from such tools.

If your domain is assigned with one of the 1&1 Control Panel tools, you should be able to determine which tool the domain is assigned to by the Domain Overview page.
