Hi, as the title says, lets say for now I have a site called example.org .
I want to create a subdomain and change the CNAME to point at other URL . Currently the example.org domain name is registered from GoDaddy but the hosting server is from Cloudflare.
So, what I do is :-
- From example.org cpanel, i created a subdomain called test.example.org .
- I go to Advance Zone Editor and change both test.example.org. and www.test.example.org. from A record to CNAME. The CNAME I wrote test.dev.org
- I go to Cloudflare, pick example.org and under DNS setting I add both test.example.org and www.test.example.org CNAME record to test.dev.org and make the cloud logo grey
- I go to https://www.whatsmydns.net/ and search for test.example.org and all shows test.dev.org
But, the problem is the test.dev.org developer said he cant make a connection to my subdomain. And when I search test.example.org at browser, it showed HTTP ERROR 500. The CNAME developer said I should see a 404 error with his company logo supposely. May I know what I’m doing wrong?
btw, at whatsmydns, when I search NS record for test.example.org , it doesn’t show any IP. Is this the problem?
