My goal: Buy domain on Godaddy, point it to Cloudflare nameservers, utilize Cloudflare functionality, and serve the content from my existing hosting provider.
The Problem: Adding the domain in my hosting cPanel - Addon Domain module in the cPanel rejects the domain with the following error:
Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver.
Here's online DIG result:

I've tried asking CF support, but they haven't replied in 8 hours.
