Heroku ROOT Domain

I have a

  1. Application Deployed on Heroku
  2. Custom Domain from Godaddy

Now I wanted to route user to my Root Domain that would be example.com. Since GoDaddy does not support APEX or Root domain ( ALIAS or ANAME ) type record, I moved to Cloudflare

I’m having difficulty understanding Configure-Cloudflare-and-Heroku-over-HTTPS article
As it says add your root domain in DNS record as CNAME as Cloudflare supports CNAME Flattening but what should I set the record name for my root domain ?

If I add @ then it throws

An A, AAAA, or CNAME record with that host already exists. (Code: 81053)

I’m able to server website for www.example.com but not for example.com


This means that there is a DNS that already exists for example.com. You have to replace the existing record with the hostname. If no record exists then please share a screenshot of your DNS records.
