Attempting to add a Dummy IP for CNAME


I attempting to redirect my entire domain using the page rules. In order to this I referred to this article: Redirecting One Domain to Another

It states I should add a CNAME record for @ and WWW pointing to a dummy IP (

However when I try to add these CNAME records, I get a DNS Validation Error at the bottom (Code 1004, Content for Cname record is invalid).

How can i fix this?

Ehm, a CNAME cannot contain an IP address and the linked tutorial is quite clear about that. Please go once more carefully through the tutorial and follow the mentioned steps. For starters, it nowhere mentions CNAME.
