Do I need this DNS record?

Hi,

I have one record which is throwing up an “exposed” error. It also will not let me change the DNS type to Proxied.

If I remove this record and re-add it, should it fix the issue or do I not need the record at all?

Thanks.

You only need this record if you need a wildcard record. As you are not sure, you probably don’t need it, so you can remove it. Simply re-add it if something is not working afterwards, but yes, it will expose your server address.

Ok thanks, should I also remove it from my domain host DNS then?

That doesn’t matter, as your host’s DNS is no longer being used. I’d leave the host DNS alone.

Thank you both for your help.
