Thank you very much for the time & effort of your reply.
And apologies for my ignorance.
I’m not normally mapping records, but I’ve spent some time doing it.
(Also, correction, I meant “Business” not Enterprise in my previous un-editable post)
I’ve begun to at least imagine that if I’m unable to map name servers on Cloudflare’s side, that I’m not going to get a domain to point towards a folder at 1&1 (now recently merged some other company).
I’ve spent a lot of time attempting to get it to work, but I’m not sure if I’m missing something or not.
So my new question is; if I can not change (or don’t want to upgrade) the nameservers at Cloudflare, should I still be able point a domain towards a folder at 1&1?
Everything is so completely simple with Cloudflare, it just seems hard to have missed something at this point, but it may be more of a time problem (although I believe that I waited a day or two between edits), or something I missed on 1&1’s side.
Is it a catch-22 where there is a standoff with who’s nameservers between companies?
If 1&1 won’t allow using “custom name servers” when a domain is point back towards 1&1…
And Cloudflare wants $20/mo for 1st level upgrade per domain…
Maybe a better question, is to where buy space now, if the problem lies more with 1&1? Ha.
