i had the same cname on another website but deleted it about 5 hours ago.
That page where you’re trying to add the CNAME record already has a record with the same name.
If you post a screenshot of that error along with all the DNS records, we can take a look. It’s ok to black out the IP addresses.
I deleted the record about 5 hours ago. do I just need to wait longer?
I’m not seeing this in your screenshot:
not sure why you’re not seeing it
I’ve now posted it twice using prt sc and ctrl V
I just don’t see anything that says “An A, AAAA, or CNAME record with that host already exists. (Code: 81053”
Which CNAME record are you trying to add?
the error only flashes on my screen for a moment
Im attempting to add a cname record with name: www and target: target.estage.com
I can see that you’re trying to add ‘www’ when that error comes up. You already have a CNAME for ‘www’ farther down:
gotcha. that record was transferred over by cloudflare from godaddy. if I delete it, I’ll be able to add the one I want?
just deleted the www record, but unable to add another CNAME record with name:@
That’s not what you showed in your screenshot. @ is just shorthand for the naked domain, so you’d have to delete the very first record on your list: The “A” one with the IP address.
yes. I was able to add the original CNAME record and the next record I needed to add was the CNAME @ record. After I deleted the A one with the ip address as you instructed, I was able to finish my assignment. Thanks so much for your [email protected]! I truly appreciate you!!
