Greetings - I’m trying to set up Cloudflare DNS to resolve to a Heroku app. I’m used to traditional hosting so pretty sure I’m missing something in this environment, but not sure what.
Heroku provides an alias URL rather than an IP so on Cloudflare I have CNAME records as follows:
CNAME MYDOMAIN.COM [heroku alias url1] Automatic [orangecloud] CNAME WWW [heroku alias url2] Automatic [orangecloud]
I also have MX records pointing at GMail but not expecting those to work until the Domain resolves which is so far failing.
It seems almost unnatural to me to not have an A RECORD but given that Heroku doesn’t provide one, the CNAME record seems to be the only option.
Any help on what I’m missing?
MTW - in a blowser [heroku Alias url1] and [heroku alias url2] both resolve to the standard ‘nothing here yet’ Heroku page.
