I’m trying to configure my DNS for my subdomain, staging.ewagers.co. After a lot of research, it seems I just need to set the A name record from staging to my IP address. However, it doesn’t seem to be working:
Type. Name. Content
A. ewagers.co [my prod site IP]
A. staging [my staging site IP]
When I ping my staging site IP, I am able to get responses back. However, when I visit my staging.ewagers.co site on Chrome, I get
“This site can’t be reached
Check if there is a typo in [stagingurl].
When I type in the IP of staging, the url bar redirects to [stagingurl] and shows the same.
I’m at a bit of a loss because it by all accounts should be simple, but may have missed something important.
Therefore, have you checked your access or error log at your origin host/server for any clue?
Is your web server for sub-domain listening and working over HTTP or HTTPS?
Nevertheless, over what port does it listen/work?
You could determine this by:
Use the “Pause Cloudflare on Site” option from the Overview tab for your domain at dash.cloudflare.com .
The link is in the lower right corner of that page.
Give it five minutes to take effect.
May I ask have you tried using a different Web browser, or tried clearing your Web browser cache?
How about using a Private window (Incognito mode) or a VPN connection if possible?
Is it the same behaviour on your mobile phone (4G LTE, mobile data, cellular)?
Furthermore, when I check the DNSSEC, I see it’s missing the DS record at your domain registrar and I assume you have got DNSSEC option enabled at Cloudflare dashboard?
Can you try to disable DNSSEC at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain name?
Kindly, may I suggest looking into below article for more information about why this error happens and how to trobleshoot:
I triple checked my security groups on AWS and I am allowing all traffic, so ssh should be fine. I am wondering why ssh to my server IP works but not to the corresponding url? And why does ping work for url but not ssh?
