DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004): Content for CNAME record is invalid (Code: 9007)


#1

Trying to add yes hemp d o t com to bing, following their instructions as follows,

" Option 3: Add CNAME record to DNS

Add CNAME (alias) record with name cdd74ef8728aaf069395829028374596 and value verify.bing.com.

So your DNS provider will resolve host cdd74ef8728aaf069395829028374596.yeshemp.com to verify bing
dot com." (had to remove url sytax this forum won’t let me post 2 URL"s)

Adding as per these instructions brings forth this error “DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004): Content for CNAME record is invalid (Code: 9007)”

Advisement for newbie is GREATLY appreciated. Awesome community here on Cloudflare thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

Can you post a screenshot of the fields you are trying to add?

@michaeljmann2000 for the CNAME you only need to add cdd74ef8728aaf069395829028374596 and for the value, verify.bing.com. After creating the CNAME, set the cloud to grey and allow about 5 minutes or so before selecting verify. Alternatively, you can download the BingSiteAuth.xml file, test link the verify.
