record and set it to
what’s the actual site?
Yes, after you add the zone (domain/site) to your cloudflare dashboard
What is the subdomain name.
Can you explain what that means? Affect by what? Does that mean you do not want a subdomain or you do not want it proxied through cloudflare?
I explain better:
I want to ‘bypass’ only my website > I want to use Cloudflare only for my website.
My website is ex.
www.mywebsite.com and the subdomain is assistance.mywebsite.com
I don’t want my subdomain on Cloudflare, same for the email.
So I’m not sure how to exclude them
There are two ways that you can accomplish your desired outcome.
One requires a Business plan or higher. The other works with any subscription, including free.
If you will be using a Business or Enterprise plan, you can use a partial setup for the hostname used for your website.

I have only a dubt, in cloudflare there is:
record A; name reg; IP 22.214.171.1248
record A; name mywebsite.com; IP 126.96.36.1998
1st IP 188.8.131.52; 2nd IP 195.7.999.9
Register said to change its IPs to cloudflare’s IPs,
but which IP? record A reg 184.108.40.2068 or record A my website 220.127.116.118?
Why I see 2 records A?

Can you share your domain name?
If your registrar requires IP addresses to be entered with the nameservers, this
should answer that question. Tutorial
When you change your nameservers to point to Cloudflare, some domain registrars (e.g. GoDaddy) ask you to provide the IP address of the nameservers alongside them.
You can find the IP address needed with an online tool, or a command. Multiple IP addresses may be returned for each nameserver, it should not matter which you use.
Using an online tool
You can use an online tool to find the IP address of your Cloudflare nameserver.
One example is
digwebinterface.com, you can just enter your two C…
Really thank You, I didnt find something specific, You found it!
Not all registrars ask for an IP with the nameserver change. The
it. registry is one of those that require it. If I hadn’t been spending time here in the Cloudflare Community, I probably wouldn’t know that registry wants an address for each nameserver.
Let us know if everything proceeds as expected or if you have any further questions.
I have a problem with a subdomain I dont want in Cloudflare because its in a different hosting (under windows).
assistance . marinstyle .it So I get ’ The website is not properly configured on this server’ .
and now 404 Not Found, The server can not find the requested page:
The ‘cloud’ is grey.
I see no record returned for the name
Sorry… assistenza . marinstyle .it
I get an SSL error due to the certificate not having a matching SAN for
You may need to register that name with the service you are using so that it can obtain a certificate.
in Register I generated and installed an ssl for ‘assistance’ but I get ’ 404 Not Found The server can not find the requested page:’
I see the certificate now contains a matching SAN. I receive a 403 where you are reporting a 404.
You will need to work on the origin server to identify why it is returning those errors.
The main website is in Linux> okay, is working.
The subdomain is in Windows and has another cpanel (I had also created the subdomain in linux to activate SSL and therefore I got an error 403/404).
Now I found the SSL option in windows hosting but Register ask me to pay for that service.
Is there an alternative?
Anyway I just called the Register support, they said they will enable the ssl option…
Is not possible, Registerit disabled my subdomain, I can’t use cloudflare.
Thank You for Your time here.
I see that you indicated that your subdomain has been disabled. I want to share an answer to one question you asked in case it helps at another time.
Is there an alternative?
If you cannot use a free automated CA like Let’s Encrypt, but are allowed to install your own certificate, the Cloudflare Origin CA has free certificates for
hostnames that use the Cloudflare proxy.
