Redirects Failing, Configuration Ignorance

I am attempting to redirect some subdomains for my business. However, the redirects never resolve properly and if I enable the proxy service for my www subdomain the site goes down citing too many redirects. I seemingly had no configurations for the Origin Server even though the SSL/TLS Encryption Mode was set to Flexible so I set it to Off but this didn’t resolve the repeating redirects issue when proxied. I’ve tried following the Cloudflare examples and instructions but I am just not getting it. Can someone help?

The site is hosted with Google Sites and the links are public. No need for obfuscation.

It looks like you are missing a proxied DNS record for, one is needed so that a request can reach Cloudflare to be redirected. You can make a dummy DNS record of AAAA with a value of 100::.

Try full Strict.


Full (strict) seems to have resolved the proxy issues with the root/www domain.
I added the AAAA record and the issues seem resolved. Thank you!

I’ll need to create a dummy AAAA record for every subdomain redirect I want to make? That seems wildly convoluted. There must be a better way to do this as creating subdomain redirects is so simple at everything other registrar.

I’m not aware of a better way. You can use Bulk Redirects to manage the list of redirects easier but you do still need to create a DNS record for each subdomain.
