edit: replaced “.” with “_” on the example domains below as the forum software is telling me my post contains too many links.
My org is planning to move some sites from AWS to be hosted on premises.
The AWS sites are using Amazon WAF.
I’d like to do a feasibility test of Cloudflare WAF to replace Amazon WAF when the sites move on premise site to show the performance is viable, before we commit to this solution.
I’d like to use subdomain cftest_mydomain_com to run Cloudflare WAF enabled versions of sites e.g. site1_cftest_mydomain_com as the Cloudflare WAF enabled test site to test site1_mydomain_com etc
site1_mydomain_com etc need to stay with AWS WAF while we test viability (so we don’t want to touch any route53 DNS config) - is there a way to do this just adding cftest_mydomain_org NS records or similar?
When I go to add site1.cftest_mydomain_com or cftest_mydomain_com in Cloudflare it tells me “Please ensure you are providing the root domain and not any subdomains”
I could register a separate new test domain for this, but I’d rather do it with a subdomain of our main domain if possible as this would look more legit than site1_sketchylookingtestversionofmydomain_org
