Where did all these CAA records come from?


I’m somewhat experienced with adding/editing DNS records. I added a domain to Cloudflare some months ago and now I notice in the DNS settings that the domain has eight CAA records added to it.

The records contain content like 0 issuewild comodoca.com and 0 issue globalsign.com (and similar ones referencing “digicert” and “letsencrypt”).

I get what they do, but I’ve never found records like these in my domains before and I didn’t add them. I’m confused as to how CAA records got included in this particular domain.

Can anyone shed some light on this? Are these records new and/or essential?
