Been over 24 hours, site not working still

Hi, all, my first time trying to use Cloudflare CDN for my website (PrintsCharmingPhotography dot com) and it’s been well over 24 hours, but the site is offline still. Error in browser says,

This site can’t be reached

www.printscharmingphotography(dot com)’s DNS address could not be found. Diagnosing the problem.


Did I something wrong, or do I need to just be patient and keep waiting? It just hurts to see that error instead of a nice website loading. =)

Thanks so much for your help!


I suspect it’s item 3 in the nxdomain tip.


Thanks, @cloonan! Any help pointing me in the direction to solve that? It’s a whole new language and I don’t even know where to begin. Thanks so much!

Man, I feel so ignorant! Where do I need to be looking for subdomain configurations?

I’d add a CNAME record called www and point it to The site shows as active but nameserver propagation appears in process, DNS Propagation Checker - Global DNS Testing Tool

Helpful Tutorial here


Thank you! I’ll do that now! How long until I would know if that fixes it?

One other thought… I believe I’ve setup previously for our regular domain to get rewritten with the “www.” in front of it. Would I be making some kind of loop adding the CNAME record you mentioned above?

Okay, I tried your CNAME record suggestion and my site loads!! Thank you ever so much! Anything else I need to check with this first attempt at Cloudflare to make sure it’s all working as it should?



You can add a page Rules to redirect as you like

Let us know how it works out and if any questions come up.
