Trouble with a DNS change



Hi just added an A record for
Pointed to ********* (IP deleted by staff)

But the lookup tool (
Says it’s pointing to

CNAME records like are working…

What’s going on here?


Hi @plasticbank the ip address ‘’ your seeing is part of Cloudflare’s network, Cloudflare acts as a proxy so it hides your origin server ip when proxy is turned on - Orange Cloud.


Never reveal your IP in public. If you faced an attack you may need move your server to a new IP.
As you have just added the A record, depending on your domain TTL it takes a while for your domain to pint to new IP.


How can i delete this post?


You can edit it and obscure the IP address.
