DNS Record updates not working

Yesterday night I updated A Record to my domain vaasi.foundation but it is not showing as updated even in the own cloudflare NS servers that I my domain use.

$ host -t A vaasi.foundation clara.ns.cloudflare.com
Using domain server:
Name: clara.ns.cloudflare.com
Address: 162.159.38.219#53
Aliases:
vaasi.foundation has address 104.27.129.121
vaasi.foundation has address 172.67.196.77
vaasi.foundation has address 104.27.128.121

My website is currently down for 1 day. Please help.

Thank you,
Prakash

If you had used the search - as you were expected - you’d have found Why does a DNS lookup on my domain not return the IP address I configured?.

Your site seems to load fine -> sitemeer.com/#https://www.vaasi.foundation/

Thank you so much Sandro! You are right, my domain was proxied in cloudflare. But when I try to disable the proxy feature it doesn’t return my backend server IP. Any idea why ? Also, I have issues with SSL certs as bluehost needs SSL certs for server-side encryption but cloudflare doesn’t have an option to download the cert which I planned to use it in bluehost server.

Considering that your site worked, Cloudflare must have had the right addresses. The current 404 is from your host and you need to talk to them about it.

Cloudflare does offer certificates which you can configure on your server, but these are optional. The certificate should first come from your host, you do need SSL on your server first.

So why cloudflare is still masking with its own IP address when I disable the DNS proxy feature ? My DNS query always returns cloudflare IPs regardless of whether I enable or disable DNS proxy feature.

That will be a DNS propagation issue. You will simply have to wait for it.

Even when I use cloudflare DNS NS of my domain it still shows only cloudflare IPs.

Can you post a screenshot of your DNS records?

Well, there are two issues.

  1. Your site shows a 404 because your server does not have an SSL certificate. You need to fix this first.
  2. The proxy status. If these are your current unchanged settings, then you might want to open a support ticket. Maybe something got stuck.

I will fix the SSL cert on my server and will open a ticket with Cloudflare. Thank you so much Sandro.
