I am currently trying to set up DNS in my free Cloudflare account. My namecheap registrar points to DNSMadeEasy (I use it for failover). The DNSMadeEasy did point all of my subdomains to Ezoic’s DNS via CNAME records (my ad company) - which in turn points to my server IP.
I used a CNAME to send a single subdomain to from DNSMadeEasy to my NEW Cloudflare account (to test configurations). In my DNS settings on Cloudflare, I have tried pointing both an A RECORD directly to my server IP, and also tried pointing a CNAME to the same domain previously pointing to Ezoic DNS. Neither resolve and both timeout.
I can ping my subdomain.mydomain.com and both configurations resolve to: 126.96.36.199 (which I assume is Cloudflare)
Can anyone help me understand where I am messing up?
