I recently moved hosting from Siteground to Cloudways.
Now I am in the process of moving Cloudflare from Siteground simple setup to Cloudways. Cloudflare asks me to change DNS in the Siteground domain setting by changin name servers. Seems simple. Well… not!
I remove Siteground nameservers and add the cloudflare, save, refresh. The siteground nameservers come back. Ask Siteground support and here their answer:
In order to point an .IT domain towards a server, the following requirements have to be met by the server towards which it is being pointed.
The servers’ IP addresses must be static and correspond to those actually associated with them,
The first server must be the same as indicated in the Server of Authority (SOA) record of the domain name.
A CNAME must not be associated with the domain name.
The name of the server specified in the SOA cannot be a CNAME.
5.At least one MX or A record must exist for the domain name.
Where an MX record is listed, it must not have an associated CNAME.
Whenever interrogated, the servers must not give the following responses: not responding, not reachable, not running, non-existent domain, host not found, server failure, query failed.
Indicated servers must be authoritative for the domain name.
All of these can be checked by Cloudflare clients within their respective account area, but if you encounter any dificulties you may contact the Cloudflare support teams for assistance.
Can’t figure out how to solve this issue which seems to be specific for .it domains.
Any help from you in the community? I wouldn’t like to drop Cloudflare which is working great and perhaps I am ready to move to a paying solution.
