Just want to forward domain traffic

Hello,
I just registered a domain with Cloudflare, and I just want to forward visitors to a URL. I do not have an origin server as I simply just want to forward my domain traffic to another URL.

I tried creating a Page Rule, but I’m still getting the following error:

This site can’t be reached

Check if there is a typo in mydomainhere.com.

DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

You need a DNS record for the domain so Cloudflare can capture the request for the page rule.

Add A 192.0.2.1 or AAAA 100:: as dummy values (proxied) as you don’t have an origin.

ok, thanks. I added an A record pointing to A 192.0.2.1

Will report back.

Added a A record pointing to 192.0.2.1
and also AAAA to 100::

Both are proxied

No change.

Deleted and re-added the page rule below:

www.mydomain.com/* with a forwarding URL

No luck.

Anything else I should try?

It’s hard to help without knowing your domain.

If you don’t want to share your domain, make sure you have also created DNS records for the www subdomain.

One is enough. I’d keep the AAAA record only.
