Is what i'm doing forbidden? Wildcard pointing to CNAME from another protected domain

Hello, i wanted to create a website where each user has its own subdomain i didn’t want to use the API to add each user subdomain to the dns records because of that i did some experience and achieved free wildcard protected subdomain.

I have the following setup:
Two domains example1.com and example2.com

On the first domain example1-dot-com i created A service.example1-dot-com record pointing to IP with orange cloud enabled.

Then on the second i created new cname record *.example2-dot-com pointing to service.example1-dot-com and orange cloud enabled.

So far it works and i got wildcard protected subdomain without paying for enterprise, is this allowed to do?

Should i continue doing this or my account could get banned?

i meant experiments.


I also found this comment from cf staff Forwarding Wildcard DNS - #14 by cscharff so i guess what im doing is fine?

Only Trust & Safety could answer that. I wouldn’t try it because I don’t want to risk getting banned. It’d be hard to defend against by calling it an “honest mistake.”

I wish to not get banned too, obviously they know about that, and i wonder why they don’t prevent it or at least show warning or something.
Im waiting for a answer from cloudflare here or i should ask somewhere else?

Hey any idea how to message Trust & Safety?
