Hi, i recently moved from hostinger to cloudways and my domain was pointing to cloudflare.
To connect domin to cloudways i needto add a record withe the followinf You can add/create “A” Record in your DNS manager by following the pattern below:
Type : A
Host : @
Value : (Cloudways Server IP)
TTL : Auto
When ever i add this in cloudflare records. I get the following error “A CNAME record with this host is already exist”
Can anyone here please help me to solve this issue
I am sorry you are experiencing an issue, but we are here to help.
It seems like a CNAME type record already exists.
If you see the error “An A, AAAA or CNAME record already exists with that host. (Code: 81053)”, it means either the CNAME record you are trying to add is for SSL verification for a partial setup and the zone is on a FULL setup; there is no need to add the CNAME record for SSL verification. Or, it means a DNS record with the same name already exists and needs to be deleted before you add a new record.
