Have you checked your nameservers for your domain at your domain registar?
What are they showing?
Are they pointed to Cloudflare nameservers?
Moreover, from the screenshot above, kindly remove the CNAME mail record.
Add new A mail record and point it to your IPv4 address and make sure that record A mail is (DNS only) cloud, otherwise your e-mail services are not going to function propperly.
For help “How to manage DNS records at Cloudflare” see the below articles:
You can use Cloudflare for your domain/website and yes, your e-mail can work even when you use Cloudflare services. Just make sure to follow the posted instructions regarding how to make your e-mail work.
Cloudflare cannot work for your domain if you do not change nameservers - that is the only “main” thing about it
To use Cloudflare as your authoritative DNS provider, you must update the nameservers at your domain registrar so that your web traffic routes through the Cloudflare network. This video explains how to change your nameservers at your domain registrar when adding your website to Cloudflare.
I believe yes. The A mail record should contain the IP address of your e-mail/hosting provider (maybe it should be the same as 22.214.171.124 and not 126.96.36.199 - if this one is your IPv4 address from home network or I am wrong and this IP address is actually from your e-mail server/hosting?).
Try leaving the value as is “dc-…” and check later if you can send/receive e-mails.
Of course, at your e-mail client (like Outlook or Thunderbird, or some other) for “incomming/outgoing server” use the hostname mail.retetefaragluten.com.
From the screenshot above, I am just not 100% aware if a MX record for your domain points to a good location? - I have not used a lot “hostnames” like “dc-something.domain…”.
Due to most situations the MX record under “content” has got a value like mail.yourdomain.com (priority either 0 or 10).
Also, from the provided screenshot, kindly to make sure you can connect to your FTP (either using FileZilla or some other FTP client), this one record should also be cloud (DNS only) - so, just click on the near FTP to be it .
That is the right way, yes.
Now when I check I see Cloudflare nameservers as a response (if not yet, will be in few hours due to the DNS propagation):
retetefaragluten.ro. IN NS
retetefaragluten.ro. 21599 IN NS dawn.ns.cloudflare.com.
retetefaragluten.ro. 21599 IN NS kianchau.ns.cloudflare.com.
In terms and concerns of security and other due to “exposing IP address”, instead a better practice is to use a third party mail service (such as Zoho, or Google Apps, etc.), or have your e-mail server running on a different IP.
You can then point the MX record to the new record or mail server not located on your machine where your website is hosted, and keep the real IP hidden safely.
Furthermore, currently in your situation I believe this is not a case so you can safely ignore the warning for now.
Now I’m getting a 522 error every time I load a new page in WordPress. This being the reason why I have changed the nameservers to the ones from my host. Do you know what I can do to fix this error without changing the nameservers?
It indeed works, but there are times when I cant even create a new article in wordpress, because I’m getting that error. Could you please tell me what exactly I should do in cPanel to be able to get emails?
Thank you so much!
Could be due to some extension, or something “hangs” due to possible time needed for a script or some SQL query to execute.
Or, maybe you would need to look at a debug.log file for your WordPress, maybe some errors would “pop-up” when you enable debugging in WordPress.
Moreover, just as an indication, check your PHP settings and try to tweak/tune them to suite even better.
And a recommendation is to use some caching with WordPress due to if some high traffic spikes or some webpage has got a lot of work to do (for example news page or similar, which needs an direct access to your MySQL database via Ajax, etc.).
Kindly, have a look up at your PHP settings and if any errors show.
Kindly, due to cPanel usage and your e-mail service, could you please check your A mail record and edit your existing MX record at Cloudflare DNS dashboard and make it be:
Kindly, make sure you have this two records setup at your Cloudflare DNS dashboard as:
A mail with content 188.8.131.52 cloud (DNS only)
MX retetefaragluten.ro with content mail.retetefaragluten.ro, priority 10
And also make sure to use mail.retetefaragluten.ro as an incomming and outgoing (POP3/SMTP) server when using your e-mail client (like Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.).
