I am getting the error message: “Error 1000 DNS points to prohibited IP”.
I am using a domain in which the previous owner still has an active cloudflare account. The previous owner is not responsive so I cannot get them to remove the domain on their cloudflare account.
I’ve changed my domain’s nameservers to the 2 provided by cloudflare. I have 3 A records: *, domain name, and www all pointing to my web server’s ip address. However, it still points to the old ip address when I check with whatsmydns.net. The page has “Error 1000 DNS points to prohibited IP”
I’ve read the tutorial Fixing Error 1000 - DNS points to prohibited IP and also the posts from other people with the same error message, but I can’t find a way to fix this.
I put in a support ticket #2143526, but its been over a day with no response.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. thx
