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

I tried changing my minecraft servers IP but it keeps giving me that error in the title
Could someone help me

First of all, you wont be able to proxy your Minecraft traffic over Cloudflare, if that is what you intend to do.

Second, 1004 is well documented and you should have used the search before posting.

Third, post a screenshot of what you are trying to add.

I blocked my IP (The actual IP that people can hit me off with)

A CNAME can’t be an IP, that would be an A record. A CNAME is an alias for one hostname to another.

Did you actually enter an IP address in the Target field? That would not work, a CNAME requires a hostname instead. You will want an A record in this case.

Also, you cant have that proxied - as I mentioned in my first response. Click the :orange: icon to toggle it to :grey:.
