I just transitioned from name.come to Cloudflare. When Cloudflare scanned my dns, it brought in over 100 txt records that don’t exist anywhere at name.com. I don’t know where they came from or why they’re there. I want to make sure my dns is accurate and clean so I’m not sure what to do with these. Anyone have that issue or a suggestion?
Just for reference, there are suddenly a whole bunch of these:
and a bunch of others
I hadn’t heard about this issue until now. Although there is no one-click solution, you can solve this by simply deleting all these records and adding only those that should exist.
If there are many, you can do a mass import:
This article from
Name.com's Knowledge Base explains how to export them.
I’m not familiar with
Name.com, so I can’t tell you if the file generated by the export will be compatible with the one used by Cloudflare (BIND-formatted), so you’ll need to be sure about that.
I hope it helps. Please let me know if I can help with any further questions.
