DNAME Records on Cloudflare


#1

it’s possible create an alias on cloudflare (DNAME) for an entire subtree of the domain name tree?


#2

We don’t currently support DNAME. Something we have discussed, but I don’t believe is on the current short term roadmap.


#3

That could be helpful though… Is there a reason or it’s just not important/requested enough?


#4

I can’t speak for the DNS team specifically, but I think it is partly frequency of requests and partly the complexity required to solve/ implement.

There’s a more general problem with DNS RFCs at the moment and a great read on it here:

I admit I hadn’t even heard of DNAME records until this request and after I read through the RFC at least personally I wasn’t convinced this was a particularly pressing problem to be solved or a problem that couldn’t be solved in other ways already.

The product team is aware of it though and they probably have a totally different opinion than mine. Their recent roadmap has been focused on delivering some other high priority improvements, I imagine they are starting to think through their next set of priorities, so I’m sure DNAME will be one of the topics under discussion.
