DNS doesn't work after migrating domain to Cloudflare registrar

I have migrated my DNS to Cloudflare and even though I got the notification that it has been succesfull my A record which points to my public IP and CNAME which points to my Cloudflare Tunnel don’t work. Any idea why? It has been a few hours

What is the domain?


Is Cloudflare saying the site is “pending” or “active”?

For some reason the delegation from Cloudns doesn’t seem to be working correctly.

I was going to set up a Cloudns zone to check myself, but the cloudns.ch and cloudns.be offered still haven’t made it from the PSL to Cloudflare. I do know another user account on Cloudns delegated to Cloudflare and that works ok when I checked just now.

dig +short onlydevops.cloudns.biz ns

dig +short onlydevops.cloudns.biz @ernest.ns.cloudflare.com

dig +short onlydevops.cloudns.biz


Thanks for your help on this. It says Active so I assume the delegation should work correctly

Okay, I think it won’t work. What I’ve just found:

Free zone:
DNS zone with free domain name. Records can be managed only from our interface.

I bought the Domain directly from Cloudflare. Setup the tunnels but still my SSH doesn’t work. It’s timing out. The domain is onlydevops.cc and subdomain master.onlydevops.cc which is my VM. master.onlydevops.cc CNAME points to argotunnel. config:
tunnel: 29f5e60d-07ea-46a9-ac54-e6804da164a7
credentials-file: /home/bambo/.cloudflared/29f5e60d-07ea-46a9-ac54-e6804da164a7.json
