I registered a new domain name yesterday, RealEstateFinancialPlans.com, and setup a CNAME for www to go to a service provider (custom . heysummit . com) I added spaces around the dots because I am not allowed to post that many URLS.
They only won’t accept it on the root domain and that’s why I am using the www.
So, I set up 3 things:
- a CNAME for www going to custom . heysummit . com and using the orange proxied.
- a CNAME (with CNAME flattening turned on) for realestatefinancialplans . com to go to www . realestatefinancialplans . com) using the orange proxied.
- a TXT record for realestatefinancialplans . com to verify domain ownership for AHREFS with DNS only.
Also, set up force HTTPS.
Also, set up a Page Rule thinking it would redirect those using the root to the “www” equivalent:
realestatefinancialplans . com/*
Forwarding URL (Status Code: 301 - Permanent Redirect, Url: https:// www . realestatefinancialplans . com/$1)
However, I set this up yesterday morning and… as far as I can tell… it is still not showing as resolving to the custom . heysummit . com website… they told me it would show a “heysummit site not found” message once the CNAME is resolving.
Thank you in advance.
