Whats this DNS error and how can It be fixed


Hi I am getting this error.
I transferred my NAME SERVERS from another host to Cloudflare and I’m tring to Create a CNAME BUT I GET THIS ERROR. CAN ANYONE HELP?

A, AAAA or CNAME record already exists with that host. (Code: 81053)

Thanks Very Much



You have an existing record with the name you are trying to create. Either edit the existing record or delete it and then create the new record.

Thanks for the help but I dont have an existing record with the same name I’m trying to create. I am trying to create a CNAME
CMANE @ target.clickfunnels.com Automatic

But there is no name thats the same in the DNS for this domain.

Unless is says something different but it is some how effecting adding this new CNAME.

Please See Attached

Thanks for your help



There is an A record there for imxgroup.ca pointing to

@ is shorthand for yourdomain.com
