Error: This record type cannot be proxied. (Code: 9004)

I have a domain ( registered at GoDaddy. DNS was also managed there. I just added the site to my Cloudflare account and changed the name servers in the GoDaddy account. When I try to change the root A record or the www CNAME record, I’m getting the error:
This record type cannot be proxied. (Code: 9004)

I’ve been using Cloudflare for years, and this is the first time I’ve seen this. Any idea what may be causing this and how to fix it?

You may not be able to enable proxied on Cloudflare if you point records to Shopify if you are not using Cloudflare Enterprise plan

Well I learned something new today. I wasn’t aware of that partnership with Shopify and the Enterprise requirement. I guess I’ll move DNS back to GoDaddy :slightly_frowning_face:
