Domain ping check

Hello everyone,

I am new and have questions and some problem,

First of all the whole system works well here is some photo in the attachment

I’ll explain the problem to you:
When I test sending ping to “hydro … com” I receive the IP of my VPS server and when I send ping to “www.hydro … com” I receive the IP from Cloudflare all simply I want to understand why I receive on the first ping request the IP of my VPS and if I use “www” I receive that of cloudflare? on the photos and writing them I hid the exact domain name and the ip. (To avoid publicity and safety)

I wish you excellent work.

It sounds like your hydro DNS entry is set to :grey: (DNS Only), but the ‘www’ entry is set to :orange: Proxied.

Here my DNS Management config

Without the actual domain name, we can’t check, but you can also test at

It’s also possible that you have a local hosts file on your device so it’s not using DNS for that hostname.

ok if it doesn’t fit in the ad the domain name is:

I registered it with GoDaddy (just the domain) and added the IP of VPS separately with A Type of DNS Management

Both of my pings go to Cloudflare IP addresses. DNSChecker also shows Cloudflare addresses.
