Root A record not resolving

I am having some issues configuring page rules and a root A record for a friend. I have added a root A record pointing to a 192.x.x.x address and set the record to Proxied. I have then gone to Page Rules and configured a new page rule that redirects example.com/* to https://www.example.com/$1 however I am constantly getting DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN in Chrome and when doing a ping/dig I’m getting no record found?

Domain in question is supersmartstories.com which resolves if you do www.supersmartstories.com but doesn’t resolve if you do https://supersmartstories.com

I believe I have solved my issue. I followed this guide which advised to use the IP 192.0.2.1 which although proxied didn’t seem to do anything.

Changing the record to something like 66.6.44.4 seems to have made the record show up in Dig

You need to start with making sure you have a DNS A record with the name @ and then use an IP address. You can use the one in my solution but you need to ensure the orange cloud ‘Proxied’ is turned on.

Once this is done, go to Page Rules and create a new rule that says example.com/* Forwarding URL to https://www.example.com/$1

In the examples above you need to make sure that replace example.com with your domain. Allow 5 minutes then it should start replicating.

If you get stuck then follow the guide in my solution above.
