Hi my primary domain uses Cloudflare nameservers. I created a subdomain from my Cpanel it did not work. When I asked my hosting provider, they said I need to create an A record pointing it the same same primary domain IP so that it will work. I did that but still it is not working. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.
To create a subdomain, in the DNS tab, you add a record with the name of the subdomain, pointing to your host. They will specify whether it needs to be an A record or CNAME etc. And give you the content of the record.
Thanks for the information. They told to add an A record and gave me the IP. I did that. But when I visited the subdmain its going to a different website, not the original path where the files are located.
Without the actual hostname, we can’t check, but I suspect you’re trying to use HTTPS here when the server isn’t configured for HTTPS on the subdomain. For now, you can try editing that DNS entry so it’s DNS Only and see if you can get that site working with HTTPS.
Hi, Many thanks for the information. Yes, with the Gray Cloud it is working after I added a CNAME. But with Organge cloud, it is being redirected some other site. Also how to I activate HTTPS for subdomains as well please? Thanks!
Start by adding SSL for that subdomain at your host, then make sure your SSL/TLS setting here is Full (Strict).
