Creating Subdomain in Cloudflare for Convertkit Landing Page

Hey there,

I am trying to host a ConvertKit landing page on a new subdomain on my site (landing.benpages.com). My domain is with Godaddy, Hosting with Bluehost. The nameservers point to Cloudflare, so that’s where I went to make the DNS changes.

I followed these steps:

CK gave me three A records to add to my DNS.
I went to Cloudflare and added them (screeenshot).
However, if you run the subdomain through DNSchecker, you’ll see that the A records for the subdomain are different than the ones I entered in Cloudflare.

Note: it’s been a week since I made the change, so the new entries have had plenty of time to propagate.

Where’s the issue coming from? Thanks!

Hi, and thank you, sdayman.

I’ve gone ahead and disabled the Proxy then. Is that what you recommend?

With the Proxies on, the subdomain shows a 404 page from ConvertKit, which CK customer support said is because the A records for the subdomain aren’t theirs (as indicated by DNSchecker).

Now that I’ve turned off the proxy, the subdomain shows a “site non-secure” warning.

Since it’s not proxed, that indicates your server is not configured for a secure connection. You’d have to work with the host to fix that.
