CNAME record resolving as an A record

I have a CNAME record set up but it’s propagating as an A record not as CNAME.

Not sure what I need to do to resolve it. I’ve seen some info on CNAME flattening - this option appears to be turned on in my DNS settings (I don’t have a second option in the drop down).

Any advice?

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community. :logodrop:

When a CNAME is :orange: proxied, it will be published as A and AAAA records pointing to Cloudflare. If you need your CNAME to be published as a CNAME, you must set it to :grey: DNS Only.


I did not know that. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain it. I’ve adjusted it now and will wait for it to propagate.


…and it’s propagated already.

Thanks again.
