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

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.
