I have domain configured on Cloudflare with a buch of subdomain pointing to my personal server where I host instences of directus.
I would like to keep the subdomain pointing to my server, but I want the domain to point to an app hosted on netlify.
Is that possible? I tried seting up a redirect rule in Cloudflare, but I can’t get it to work.
What would be the easiest way to do this?
I suppose I could configure mydomain in netlify, but because I have many subdomains, that would imply quite a lot of work.
Any idea about the best way to do this?
Yes, that’s possible at the DNS level: no need for any redirect rule.
Just as with subdomains, you have two options:
A Record: Point your apex domain to Netlify’s load balancer IP address
CNAME ANAME Record: Point your apex domain to Netlify’s load balancer host address
Please see the specific instructions and the load balancer addresses here:
thanks for taking the time to help me!
Could you give me more info about how to do that? I’m still unfamiliar with all this…
Please follow the step-by-step official Netlify guide I’ve already provided above.
If any of the steps are not clear to you, then ask a more specific question about that specific step.
sorry, I didn’t realize there was a step by step guide.
so do I have this roght?
I assign my domain to my app in netlify
I create a CNAME record in Cloudflare and set
apex-loadbalancer.netlify.com as the target
I will still be able to manage my subdomains in Cloudflare?
What some providers refer to as an ANAME is known as CNAME Flattening at Cloudflare.
