I just joined Cloudflare and it is GREAT.
We have a wordpress website on Godaddy Managed Wordpress.
I have configured DNS with:
One A (root domain for ex domain.com.au) record pointing to the IP address of the godaddy web server
One CNAME www for ex domain.com.au
Using straight DNS and the website loads no problems.
Then I decided to accelerate the website and have installed the cloudflare wordpress plugin, configured the cloudflare signon email address and the global API key, so fa so good.
Then I went to change the status of the above A record and cname to use CDN/Proxy.
I waited a good 15 minutes and when I try to access the web page with a browser for ex. www.domain.com.au I get:
This page isn’t working
I cleared the browser cache and also issued an ipconfig /flushdns, still the same.
The original webserver IP address 198.71.x.x is hidden, because when I ping domain.com.au I get a reply from a Cloudflare Host:
What am I doing wrong? Or what is wrong?
I would appreciate some help on this.
