I’m trying to solve a problem with my Google Search Console. It’s saying I need to verify all of my subdomains. In reading about DNS settings in Cloudflare help articles, I think this may be a “crawl error,” but I’m not sure. When I go to the help page about DNS crawl errors, it says this:
Troubleshooting steps vary depending on whether your domain is on Cloudflare via a Full or CNAME setup. To verify which setup your domain uses, open a terminal and execute the following command (replace www.example.com with your Cloudflare domain):
dig +short SOA
I’m pretty sure I have a CNAME setup but I don’t know what it means when they say “open a terminal…” What’s a terminal???
