Hello! I’ve create a new website a pretty long time ago on cloudflare, and was planning to move here from google DNS without any long downtime, but for some reason, even after research and following all the recommendations, I have a pretty long downtime… and I can’t even test how it passed for all ready propagated servers.
What I did:
- copied all the records from google DNS to Cloudflare
- made sure that all records I have in Cloudflare are in
DNS onlymode Followed recommendation from here:
2.1) Moving over name servers with as little downtime as possible
2.2) Transferring Domain: Worries with DNS and Downtime
etc. (all of those more or less are the same, which is good of course)
- Since I have the main application of Google AppEngine and I have SSL certificates, I’ve researched if this can be a problem
3.1) It may be, but as much as I got till the moment of the full DNS propagation, I will not know exactly, since it depends on various configurations, however, it should not be a problem if I am using FULL(Strict) mode and it won’t pass through the GAE SSL certificates
3.2) Anyway I don’t have any 5** SSL errors at the moment. It can’t find any IP address of the website.
- Anyway my website is down for more than 6 hours already, but it was supposed to move seamlessly, so I don’t understand what did I do wrong? and is there a way to increase speed of propagation(almost sure that not), to TEST properly if I set everything correctly, especially regarding CNAME records with values
ANY help is MUCH appreciated.
