What records can I delete and change

in flag

I own the website which has the IP 123.456.789.12. Its hosted with HostingCompany and the nameservers are hosted with Cloudflare. Cloudfare auto generated my DNS records. Which record actually makes it so when customers visit or it takes them to my website? I have 9 A records like autoconfig, autodiscover, cpcalendars etc which I think are essentially useless to me and I want to delete them.

Is it:

Type Name Content
A 123.456.789.12
A localhost

Then I have MX, CNAME, SRV and TXT records which I am unsure of as well. I understand that MX is important for emails and one of the TXT records verifies the MX record for the email host. I want to clean up my DNS and point my website do a new hosting provider without revealing the IP of my current and new hosting provider.

"which has the IP 123.456.789.12". No, this is not a valid IPv4 or IPv6 address. Why obfuscating things, and on top of that why obfuscating badly?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
