I have a domain using Cloudflare and I want to create a subdomain that points to a bucket in Digital Ocean. (test.example.com)
So, I created a new A registry on the “DNS” tab in Cloudflare.
A ---- test ---- 138.xxx.xxx.xxx — orange cloud (Proxied)
For some reason this doesn’t work and shows a Error 521 ( Web server is down).
If however I removed the proxied option and use "dns only " (grey cloud), it works as expected.
What’s going on?
I would like it to be proxied so I can have SSL on my digital ocean droplet.
Also, do I need to do anything in Digital Ocean?
They have an option to add domains, but not sure what’s for if I have to do it all from Cloudflare?
