DNS name with same NAME value

Hello Community,

Bradford Grammar School

We have a query where an Enabled Platform provider needs to know whether one of our sites hosted on Cloudflare can support the following bullet points below.

“We are more than happy with you adding and make the relevant changes on your end, but in our experience due to the nature of the records and the rules governing records with the same name value, you will only be able to do this under the following conditions:

• Either your current DNS must be able to host a CNAME record as an ALIAS for an A Record (Most DNS registrars cannot do this)
• Or if you are hosting your DNS records in Route53 on AWS which allows this.
If you are not using AWS, you are able to create your own AWS account and delegate to your own account so you retain control.”

Any help gratefully appreciated on this.

Kind Regards,
