the photo illustrates how the cloudflare.com dsn cname should be setup. Under section titled Name with an “@” in the text box, I wasn’t able to include my custom domain (bought at godaddy.com) and entered “dave” for the time being to end the session.
I contacted godaddy shortly after and after a little deliberating was able to provide the DNS servers which the godaddy support person changed to point at Cloudflare’s.
I recieved an updated status from godaddy in my inbox, and the status displayed on Cloudflare also says active but I think I failed to set up the “Name: @” region properly and can’t seem to be able to access the Cname list in order to rectify the problem - hence the screen shot taken from the freeforums.com/.proboards.com instruction page.
So I’m wondering why the “Name: @” field wouldn’t accept my domain name (message returned “name is already in use…”) [btw, I’m registering a custom name.com.au address] but there wasn’t seemingly any way to edit the extension of .com as provided…
I only got this far with it all about 6am (+10 EST; 21st May), so expect it wont be ready yet, as help advised. Also, haven’t been able to “succesfully add” new domain name to freeforums.com/proboards.com text box for new domain name and error message appears:
"We could not verify your domain details. Please check to ensure you have modified your domain’s settings according to our guide. You can contact our support team if you need assistance.
Thankyou kindly in advance for reading my (maybe) daft report on this issue.
Any advice or suggestions will be much appreciated
