Webflow "...remove the AAAA record from your DNS settings to ensure your site loads properly."

I am trying to add my domaine to Webflow and connect it to my Webflow site. I updated my DNS settings and set the default domain. The problem is that I keep getting an error from Webflow, “You must remove the AAAA record from your DNS setting to ensure your site loads properly”. I don’t see any AAAA record in my DNS management at Cloudflare. I’ve included an image. Any help is appreciated.

The link for instructions from Webflow for connecting a custom domain:


That’s pretty horrible advice. AAAA records are there for IPv6 support, which is a desperately needed technology http://ipv6now.info/whyipv6.php. This warning shouldn’t affect your website.


Are they implying that they won’t publish your site as long as there are AAAA records?

If so, if you “Pause Cloudflare on Site” from the Overview page, you’ll go into DNS-Only mode with just the origin A records. Maybe then they’ll publish your site and then you can un-pause Cloudflare and hopefully they won’t disable your site.
