Cloudflare not routing to azure web app


Recently I’ve registered a new domain with GoDaddy and I wish to use cloudflare with Azure web app. I have set up the custom domain within Azure following the guide to set up an A, CNAME and TXT record.

Appreciate any guidance!

Can you post a screenshot of your DNS records here? It’s ok to black out any IP addresses.

Please see below

Now it’s a different result. It’s stuck in a redirect loop.

Did Azure’s instructions tell you to add an “A” record with an IP address? If it was showing a default GoDaddy website, that IP address may have been the GoDaddy one.


It’s just taking a while for DNS to propagate. If you just added this domain to Cloudflare, it may take 48 hours for DNS to catch up.

Redirect Loop:

When I changed the name servers to Cloudflare, it picked up an “A” record which had the IP address of GoDaddy. I amended it to the azure web app IP address but retained the old value when pinging the domain name.

I’ll leave it a bit longer and see if it just needed to catch up :slight_smile:

:wave: @dave.james.reilly,

Based on @sdayman’s screenshot I suspect you SSL settings are ‘flexible’. Try setting them to ‘full’.


Hi Oliver,

It was set to Flexible, I have now set it to Full. However, nothing has changed yet :slight_smile:
