The hostname is resolving to an IP address…

I have updated all places, but still I am getting same error & issues has not been solved.

That’s weird. In SJR’s earlier test, that hostname was returning an unproxied IP address. Now it’s resolving as proxied IP addresses. Are you sure it’s still set to :grey: DNS Only?

% host has address has address has address has IPv6 address 2606:4700:20::ac43:45d5 has IPv6 address 2606:4700:20::681a:fc1 has IPv6 address 2606:4700:20::681a:ec1

that domain I don’t want to use like a subdomain. I am using that domain for redirecting “Custom Return Path” for mail. So, I have used like. you can check snapshot. So, it’s getting error that “CName not published.”

You may not want to host a website at, but it is a subdomain nonetheless. I see it is once again resolving to the IP address which belongs to your email service provider Zoho.

It seems you’re using Zoho Campaigns so I just set up a test account to dig into this. I was able to instantly verify the CNAME record for my Custom Return Path subdomain:

Please share your full Cloudflare DNS screen with us. Is this provided screenshot even from the right zone? Impossible to tell. Anyone can lookup DNS records for a domain and, other than any proxied origin IP address which you may not want to show publicly, I see no point in the tight cropping.
