Unable to add CNAME record for subdomain

I am getting error “DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004)” while trying to add my subdomain on cloudfare. Main domain is working fine. Please suggest workaround.

Please follow the guide within the editor. This has been discussed hundreds of times.

I am sorry … but I could not find anything related to subdomain in this topic.

Hi @nomadicmun,

If you can’t find a solution to your issue, please post a screenshot of the record you are trying to add and the error message shown.

Hello @domjh,

Here is the screenshot of the record I am trying to add. And the error msg is “DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004)”.

That looks to me like you are trying to point a CNAME record to itself, bangla.nomadicmun.com points to bangla.nomadicmun.com, that is just a loop and won’t work, you wither need the CNAME pointing somewhere else, or use an A record pointing to your server’s IP.

Yes… A record helped to fix the problem. Thanks!!!
