DNS record, boostrap studio help

I’m trying to publish a website through Bootstrap Studio. I bought the domain name from GoDaddy about a year ago. Just built the site. I changed the nameservers on godaddy.com to Cloudflare, and now I’m supposed to add a DNS record on Cloudflare.

This is what I’m supposed to do for Bootstrap.

This is how I tried to do it.

This is the error: “An A, AAAA, or CNAME record with that host already exists. (Code: 81053)”

I am a complete rookie at web hosting stuff. What am I supposed to do here? Which one do I delete/edit?

Below is an article suggesting what to look for and how to fix this issue:

True, as Cloudflare from now on manages the DNS recrods for your domain name which you still renew yearly at GoDaddy.

You did the correct step adding a CNAME record, but from the above screenshots I see you already have A zennydaye.com.

Before adding the CNAME pointed to bootstrapstudio you should remove the existing A zennydaye.com pointed to the IP address.

Therefore, add the CNAME zennydaye.com pointed to sites.bootstrapstudio.io as you already tried to and it should work.

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community Forum! We are here to help :wink:


Thank you!!! It worked :raised_hands:t5:
