Does "DNS only" bypass cache etc.?


I always thought that setting a subdomain A record to “DNS only” instead of “Proxied” would immediately bypass any Cloudflare stuff, regardless of page rules. But I it looks like this is not the case as I still see Cloudflare code on the page and images are still from cache. Is this expected?


DNS only bypasses Cloudflare completely and each request will hit your server directly.

What’s the domain and which code do you mean?

Hmmm, it looks like Chrome had maybe cached the old Cloudflare IP despite being in private mode. Starting a new private browser seems to have solved the problem. Thanks for the help, I will observe if the problem reoccurs.
