Hello. Need help with DNS which is not propagating after 24hr.
mydomain.com registered at Webhost X.
DNS at Webhost X pointed at NS for Webhost Y
Webhost Y is where website is hosted
Webhost Y DNS settings are as follows
Note 1: db is for accessing website db
Note 2: no MX record because not using email for mydomain.com.
Note 3: whois shows cloudflare for NS
Q1. Do I need to point NS at Webhost X (registrar) to Cloudflare as well?
Q2. Do I need to do anything with A records at Webhost Y? If so, what?
Have updated DNS on Webhost X (registrar) to point to Cloudflare.
Propagation has occurred and website now active on Cloudflare.
Actual website is not resolving now; getting 403 forbidden error.
Note 4: Using SSL; applied and configured at Webhost Y.
After 30 minutes, website resolving again, but HTTPS not working.
Cloudflare > Crypto states ‘authorizing certificate’ in progress.
non-www to www redirect also not working.
Will continue to wait for crypto settings to take affect.
Cloudflare > Crypto “Always use HTTPS” set to ON.
Website not resolving again; 403 error.
After another 30 minutes, website is resolving again.
All appears to be working fine.
Be patient with DNS setting changes.
Hope for a smoother transition to Cloudflare than I had. Lol.
Luckily my website is still in dev, so not public yet.
