CloudFront for naked domain name WordPress problem


I have created a WordPress website ( and wanted to use CloudFront. In the wizard, it asked me to add the below CNAME record in my DNS records.

Name               Type     Value      CNAME

But when I tried to enter that in my DNS records I got an error that it is not allowed. What is your solution for this?

Note: I even tested this with Route 53 and got a similar error:

(InvalidChangeBatch 400: RRSet of type CNAME with DNS name is not permitted at apex in zone
