DNS Records are Confusing me

I just moved my name servers to my new Cloudflare account and accepted the DNS records Cloudflare found for my domain but this really looks odd to me, Do I really need all these entries for Cloudflare to work with my Bluehost shared account?
I expected an A record, a name, and an MX record.

You don’t need all those records. You probably had a * DNS record on your old DNS host, which causes Cloudflare to import a bunch of records.

Those look like cPanel defaults which include many records that won’t be used. You can delete any you know don’t need, but if you are unsure, you can safely leave them.


All I need is a A record pointing to my server
A cname for www to root
as the MX record
