How to delete multiple DNS record at once?

I’m adding a new domain and it automatically listed a 900 DNS record probably used by the former owner of the domain. Now I wish to delete them at once but I can’t figure out how to do it.

Hello abayangan

To delete multiple DNS records at once, you’ll need to use the Cloudflare API. This involves writing a script that lists the records, then loops through that list to delete them. You can learn more about this process in these documents:

Please remember to back up your current DNS records before you proceed with the deletion. This way you can easily restore them if something goes wrong.

If you aren’t up to writing your own API script, there are some third-party tools developed by a Community MVP that should meet your goal.
