I’ve setup a vm on Google Cloud Platform with access via https and a static ip address (https://18.104.22.168/). I added an A record in the DNS zone that point to that machine, where I have a Ghost server active and the relative port open. My ns are correctly setup, but when I ping the domain I get a different ip from the one it should point to. apparently, this is a cloudflare ip (22.214.171.124)
this prevents me to install an SSL certificate on the VM. and additionally I can’t reach the website nor via http nor via https.
anyone can help understand why the domain is not pointing to the A record?
(or if it’s not an issue related to cloudflare?)
