A recod target IP keeps changing on it's own - and I dont know why


I am currently on the Free plan since almost a decade and now run into a problem that I have never seen before: The A record for my domain drachennetz.com keeps changing completely on its own. Whenever I change it to, it will, at random, change to a completely different IP on it’s own without warning, notification or anything.

I did recently add records for Mailgun and Simple-Login, but those should not cause my A records to change. Also, the sub domain A record never changed thus far - only the wildcard and main records do that.

I am at a loss and throughly confused… But, since I am on the free plan, I can’t ask the Cloudflare staff to look into what exactly keeps altering my A record.

Do you have any idea?

Thanks and kind regards,

Check your audit log to see what keeps changing it: https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/audit-log

Turns out while updating Home Assistant on my NAS, I unbricked it, which started running automations to basically provide DDnS for CF.

And that was the problem. XD

Revoked the API key for now to fix HASS. Thank you for the hint!
