Cloudflare seems not t obe working [status active]


#1

Hello there,

Sometime ago, I decided to activate Cloudflare for the website maleysyndicate.com. I updated the nameservers as instructed and, in fact, the nameservers change reflects. On my dashboard, it shows “status active” which seems great. However, the traffic to the website doesn’t seem to be routed through Cloudflare at all. The analytics tab shows there have been “0 requests” in the last 24 hours. I thought it was just an issue with the statistics taking time to be updated, so I created a user-agent rule to block Chrome 68 users, but all requests go through without even a challenge. In addition to all this, I can see that a universal SSL certificate is active on the domain and its subdomains, but all browsers show the origin certificate. Is there anything I need to do?

I added the website under a free plan first to see how it works and upgrade later. What is going on here?

Thanks.

Your DNS configuration is set to return the actual host address instead of Cloudflare’s proxies. If you switch the host from :grey: to :orange: it should work as expected.
