New to Cloudflare, redirecting a domain

We’re new to Cloudflare. We recently transferred a domain to Cloudflare and read the docs to redirect the domain to a URL. We’re getting a specific error and not sure how to resolve it. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

BTW, we are using a CNAME for the www which points to a valid URL. We know it works because we are using it in production presently. Thanks!

Point www and non-www both to any IP (except localhost) in the Cloudflare DNS records, proxy them both. Now you can play with any page rules you want.

You can’t point a CNAME to an URL (like http://…), it has to point to a resolvable domain name (like What exactly do you have the CNAME pointed to?
