DNS Record Error code

I am trying to connect my domain to my HubSpot account using a CNAME with Host “www” and Data “23451906.group6.sites.hubspot.net”, but am getting an error saying “An A, AAAA, or CNAME record with that host already exists.”.

The error message you’re encountering indicates that there’s already an existing DNS record with the same hostname (“www”) in your Cloudflare DNS records.

To resolve this issue, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Cloudflare dashboard.
  2. Go to the domain you’re trying to connect.
  3. Navigate to the ‘DNS’ section.
  4. Locate the existing DNS records with “www” as the host. You may have an A, AAAA, or CNAME record.
  5. Delete those records by clicking Edit then the red delete button.
  6. Now, add the new CNAME record for your HubSpot connection:
  • Set the Type to “CNAME
  • Set the Name to “www”
  • Set the Target to “23451906.group6.sites.hubspot.net
  • Save changes

After making these changes, allow some time for DNS propagation, and your domain should be connected to HubSpot.
