If you have no website for these and they are just to be redirected, add dummy DNS records like: @ A 192.0.2.1 or AAAA 100:: (this is for privateloanrates.com) wwwCNAMEprivateloanrates.com or A 192.0.2.1 or AAAA 100::
When I attempt to create the dummy A record you mention for privateloanrates .com and insert AAAA 100:: into the IPv4 address field, a red error message is displayed:
Valid IPv4 address is required.
Not sure if I’m following your instructions correctly?
Your help is greatly appreciated!
Would it be better to configure a Dynamic Redirect instead? I just read an article that page rules are eventually going to be phased out?
DynamicRedirects : Like ‘Forwarding URL’ but turned up to 11. Redirect based on the visitors country, their preferred language, their device type, use regular expressions (plan level dependant) and more.
For the redirect rule (and most other Cloudflare services) to work, the hostname needs to be PROXIED on the Cloudflare network. And to be able to proxy the hostname, you need the DNS entry. Without this, your redirect rule will never work.
Your DNS records for privateloanrates.com and www.privateloanrates.com should look like below. If you’re still having a problem adding the records, please provide a screenshot of your Cloudflare DNS page, showing what you entered and the error message.
