Creating subdomains

Sorry for what seems like a pedestrian issue, but I can’t seem to find a path forward.

I purchased a domain through cloudflaire. I need to create subdomain (like ‘blog .example. net’), but all of the help articles are written as if I purchased the domain somewhere else… how do I create a subdomain on the cloudflaire dashboard? If possible, I also need to point the blog subdomain to a different ip address than the rest of the website.

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community!

It doesn’t matter if you purchased it through Cloudflare or bought it at a different Registrar and added it to Cloudflare later, DNS Management is the same.

Check out this guide below:

That guide walks you through adding most record types. For your subdomain, as the guide states, you just use blog instead of @. Let me know if you need any more help.

That’s what subdomains are for!


Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
Honestly, there is so much around here that can be done… it is a little overwhelming to a newbie.

Thanks again, and will post here if I hit any snags.
