Cannot verify domain with Yandex when domain is behind CloudFlare 2

Recently we were trying to verify the ownership of a domain through yandex. We tried the CNAME approach which would be more universal and so we added a new CNAME record in the DNS configuration in CloudFlare.

The record had the following configuration:

  • Type: CNAME
  • Name: yamail-dd63c3831dbd
  • Value: mail.yandex.com
  • TTL: Automatic
  • Status: DNS and HTTP proxy (CDN)

We tried several times the verify domain button in https://domain.yandex.com/domain/example.com/ but it kept on failing saying that the CNAME record was not found. Only after we disabled the DNS and HTTP proxy (CDN) did it work.

So in the end, the properly working record was as follows:

  • Type: CNAME
  • Name: yamail-dd63c3831dbd
  • Value: mail.yandex.com
  • TTL: Automatic
  • Status: DNS Only
