Domain forwarding - site not loading

Hi all - I am trying to set up my domain forwarding. I have a Cloudflare domain - phxestates dotcom and I want when people type that to take them to my HomeSmart website - https:// homesmart dotcom/real-estate-agent/arizona/scottsdale/83388-ventsislav-ivanov/Welcome
I have set up the following DNS records and redirect rules. However, when I type www.phxestates dotcom, I get a time out error. I tried to turn off the Cloudflare proxy but it didn’t help.

Here’s my DNS. CLoudflare didn’t let me upload two images

You’ve shut off the proxy; it needs to be turned on for this to work.

In your rule, you have the redirect URL in parenthesis. Remove those and see if it works (after enabling the proxy again).


Thanks for responding. I removed the parenthesis in the redirect URL (great catch!) but I am still getting the time out error. How can you tell that I’ve shut off the proxy? I thought that the “proxied” status on the type A and AAAA means that the proxy it’s on. Btw, I tried with on and off but still got the same result. Sorry i am not an IT person, so I don’t know what most of this stuff means.

The issue is that your DNS entries are pointing to the configured origin address. If the entries are all proxied, you probably have the domain paused on Cloudflare or you are configuring the wrong account.

If paused, unpause → Pause Cloudflare · Cloudflare Fundamentals docs


You appear to have unpaused it and it works now

Yes I unpaused it last night and it’s working now. Thank you so much!
