DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004) (Code: 9005)

Hi Cloudflare,

I’ve been trying to add a new A record to the DNS of my domain.

However, I get this:

DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004): Content for A record is invalid. Must be a valid IPv4 address (Code: 9005)

The IP addresses are valid as they name servers.

Thank you.

Either what you are entering is not an IPv4 address or you are trying to create an orange clouded record for a private IP address space.


There could be a space in there somewhere.

The Orange Cloud error usually says something like “Prohibited IP address” if it’s private space or an IP address in Cloudflare’s IP space.
