How to configure DNS CloudFlare to work?
sub is just a host, like
www, in this case. You simply create an A record which points to the IP address in question and Cloudflare will automatically proxy it to that destination (given the record is of course).
You mean this:
What you call “domain” is simply the path. Of course Cloudflare works with that, thats an intrinsic part of proxying.
These are separate websites. You can see here:
I have tried the free version before, but it doesn’t work. I am considering buying a Pro version for it so I want to know for sure that it will work
If you define a website as a root of host, these would not be different websites, but simply different content in different paths of the same hostname. And that would work with Cloudflare.
Looks like I don’t understand this clearly
When you add a domain, you can add subdomains like ‘sub’, as it appears you have done. This DNS record is required for the subdomain to work. Anything after the
/, however, is the path and has nothing to do with DNS, that is just set up at your host, probably within another folder.
If you have set the subdomain to , then unless you have any page rules stopping it, Cloudflare will work on all the paths as well.
As you can see, this subdomain is not working => http://demo.thembay.com/ . No problem?
This is because you havent configured the server properly. This host is not even proxied.
thembay.com doesn’t even seem to point to Cloudflare nameservers…
I will buy the Pro package right now, will you guide me until everything works well?
You dont necessarily need the Pro plan, do you?
You do not encourage me to buy Pro packages? I want to buy it because I tried the Free package, but it often fails. I also bought the Pro package for another domain, and it is working well.
Encourage, I dont know
I cant tell whether you need the features from the Pro plan. If you do, please go ahead and purchase it. All I am saying is you dont need a paid plan to perform basic proxying, the way you described it.
If something fails, it is rather likely because of your server than because of Cloudflare and a paid plan wont change that.
Can you check and help me see if my website has CloudFlare?
Yes, that site is on Cloudflare
Looks all right to me. Just make sure your SSL mode is “Full strict”.
Where do you check it? I check here: https://www.webpagetest.org/result/190528_KR_d08b67d167932debda10fd8d4172adc6/
Cloudflare is not a CDN in the strict sense.
Furthermore, your site resolves to Cloudflare, so it is going through their servers.
