FIrst off I don’t know anything about DNS, so I am curious if anyone can help me.
To speed up my website www.tuintjevanadam.nl I wanted to implement Cloudflare. Hoping it will speed up my website. I followed the tutorials on WP rocket and did everything step by step.
Did already three times but each time with the same result. Error 1016: Origin DNS error
So, can anyone explain what I need to do, to make it work. I’ve seen the error description and even the tutorial but most of the terms are completely new to me.
I think I need to add an extra DNS info, but I am clueless what
Regarding to the WP Rocket, kindly, may I ask you to follow the instructions how to propperly setup WP Rocket while using Cloudflare as follows on below articles:
In case you get some error to add IP to Cloudflare, you could achieve this by adding the origin host/server IP by navigating to the Security → Tools → IP Access Rules, enter the IP, select the action “allow” for your website
So the tutorials from WProcket I followed exactly. And this error also happened using a different plugin yesterday.
My hosting company doesn’t have a Coudflare option (inplesk/cpanel), so I used the WP rocket extension for it.
I have a feeling I need to change something on the DNS option in Cloudflare. There are three messages everytime I open the tab. The top two disappear after 2 seconds.
So i took a screenshot of it before it closed again.
From the messages you got on the Dashboards, seems to me you are missing some DNS records and might have to add them, if so.
For example, A domain.com and A www pointed to your web hosting server IP and set to proxied . Sharing an article below for help, a tutorial which contains step-by-step instructions how to manage DNS records at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain name:
