DNS Validation Error Code 1004. This record type cannot be proxied

We’re trying to add CNAME Records in our DNS but we’re getting an error: DNS Validation Error Code 1004. This record type cannot be proxied. Should the Proxy button be turned off? We don’t want to mess anything up before doing anything.

Would appreciate your assistance on how to work on it.

What is the target of the CNAME you’re trying to add? The proxy should only be enabled on a CNAME that points to an A or AAAA record that is used for web traffic. Otherwise, yes, shut off the proxy, it won’t mess anything up.
