Nslookup returns an extra IP address

Can someone please explain why when I look for my subdomain, I am getting two IP addresses? I have an A record getting updated by a dynamic dns client to the correct IP address of 172… But my website is not working because my browser is looking for it at the 104… IP address. Thanks in advance.

❯ nslookup pve.domain.com
Server: 10.16.91.1
Address: 10.16.91.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: pve.domain.com
Address: 104.21.9.20
Name: pve.domain.com
Address: 172.67.140.247

Both IPs are correct. You have :orange: proxied your hostname. This means you will see at least 2 Cloudflare proxy IPs returned for that name, which is what you shared. If you want to only see the IP of your origin server, you can switch the hostname to :grey: DNS Only. In doing so you will lose access to any functions provided by the Cloudflare proxy.
