IP address different on Cloudflare and whatsmydns.net


#1

My domain, uureading.org, points to 66.147.244.85 according to the Cloudflare DNS page. However, when I go to https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/uureading.org, I see a different IP address of 104.27.173.27. My site has been displaying a 500 server error for hours. How can I ensure the a record is pointing to the DNS that Cloudflare claims it is pointing to?

Those IP addresses are correct. Your origin server has its IP address, and Cloudflare’s Proxy Server has the 104 addresses. So visitor traffic will route through Cloudflare for protection and other enhanced features.

The 500 error is your server not responding to traffic through Cloudflare for some reason.
