Adding the missing DNS Records


A few more steps are required to complete your setup:

Add an A, AAAA, or CNAME record for www so that my domain will resolve.

Add an A, AAAA, or CNAME record for your root domain so that my domain will resolve.

Add an MX record for your root domain so that mail can reach @domain address or set up restrictive SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records to prevent email spoofing


Thank you for asking.

The errors you’ve listed suggest me that you are missing crucial DNS records :thinking:

May I ask if you recently added your domain name to your Cloudflare account?
Therefore changed the domain nameservers at your domain registrar to the assigned and given ones which can be found and are stated under your Cloudflare dashboard → DNS tab of your domain? :thinking:

Can you share your domain name, if so?

Before moving to Cloudflare, have you had some web hosting for your website/domain?

If yes, then you can lookup for the existing ones at the interface like cPanel or some similar, given from your web hosting provider.
Therefore, you might have an option to export them.
Otherwise, you can manually add each to the DNS tab of CF dashboard for your domain name using the tutorials from below:

My domain is debuddmarketing I did not have web hosting prior to my website builder selecting Cloudflare .

You’ll have to get this information from your web host. Who is the web host? Have you read their documentation or contacted their support?

Is it [dot]com or some other?

Okay, thank you for a feedback information.
May ask which website builder have you used or still using?

It is .com, support does not allow links😏

I use groovenpages. The site was built by the support staff of a program I market. It is basically a landing page.

first of all already seems to be up and running, with traffic already routing through Cloudflare. so what’s the issue exactly?

second what is “groovenpages”? There are no exact Google hits for that term but Google suggests / … is that what you’re talking about?

if that’s even the right service, did you look at How to add a custom domain - GrooveDigital Support ?

seems like they’re a Cloudflare reseller/partner thing meaning you shouldn’t even need a Cloudflare account, they just give you a couple of Cloudflare nameservers to point to (via the registrar you registered the domain with, which appears to be and then they handle the DNS entries and everything else.

but it seems like you did it already?

I created an account with google workspace for my email drip campaigns. The issue is that neither zoho nor google were unable to verify my domain.

debuddmarketing com is my business landing page created using template. I will also use it for my email drip campaign related to the landing page when I find out why google workspace and zoho have not been able to verify my domain.

Thanks for your help!

I actually added my domain months ago when my landing page was created. When I purchased an email account from zoho in March, I could never get my domain verified.

The problem is that as a user, you’re not actually a Cloudflare user (directly), they’re just using Cloudflare on your behalf. Hence you can’t create DNS records (or do anything else) through the Cloudflare dashboard. You’ll have to contact them, or read their support documentation, to see what they can do for you. Since you’ve turned control of your domain over to them (by pointing the domain to their Cloudflare name server combo), they’re the only ones with the authority to create DNS entries for your domain.

Most of this stuff is above my pay grade. However your reply is the first thing that has made ANY sense to me. I don’t even need a Cloudflare account…yeah!
You truly have been a blessing!

Cloudflare is the nameserver selected by when they created my landing page. I do not have a Cloudflare account. I need MX records added for emails. Who do I contact at Cloudflare to get this done?



“Them”, meaning Groove. It’s their Cloudflare account your domain is on.
