Hi, I am a consultant who has built and manages her own web site. I host with SiteGround who have given me a Cloudflare licence. So far so good.
I use a multisite on my domain and found this help guide when trying to set up both my subdomains on Cloudflare
I didn’t find it helpful, but set up CNAME records for each subdomain on my DNS Zone editor. I wanted to be sure I had done the right thing, I copied the name from the CNAME record siteground / cloudflare set up for my root domain:
cloudflare-resolve-to .xxx.co.uk - the name set up by siteground / cloudflare (I added a space before .xxx so I could post this request)
cloudflare-resolve-to .yyy.xxx.co.uk - the name I tried (I added a space before .yyy so I could post this request)
I then used the cloudflare diagnostic centre to see if it worked. I got this error message:
Non-Cloudflare nameservers found
When I hit ‘resolve’ I was told to go to siteground. So I hope someone can tell me two things:
- What is the correct CNAME name?
- Do I have to do anything in Cloudflare to tell it about my subdomains? It is working really well for my root domain.
