Hi CloudFlare folks!
I’ve been pulling my hair out for the last two days trying to figure this out. I’ve gone through pretty much all of the related topics here and still can’t get this to work. I feel like I’m missing something super simple
Essentially I have a small site based on GoDaddy, the namespaces of which I’ve set to the CloudFlare ones during setup, so all the DNS stuff is being managed here now. I want to make a web app that will involve users uploading their own media, and I figured it would be better to have the content uploaded to S3 and serve through the CloudFlare CDN to be awesome.
I made an S3 bucket called
cdn.thefyrewire.com, made sure it had the right policies attributed (access is only available to CloudFlare IPs), enabled static website hosting, which gave me the
I went to CloudFlare, added the site, then added a CNAME with a name of
cdn and content of
cdn.thefyrewire.com.s3.amazonaws.com. The little cloud icon is orange (as I guess it should be) but I’ve experimented with turning it too. However, it just doesn’t seem to work.
My ISP keeps telling me that
cdn.thefyrewire.com doesn’t exist, and when I try to visit with HTTPS I get a timeout (though SSL are probably another issue entirely).
Can anyone point in the right direction? Do I need CloudFront? I heard it’s quite expensive and this is all mostly for learning and fun so I would like to stick to the CloudFlare free plan. Thanks in advance!
Always Use HTTPS: Off
Minimum TLS: 1.0
Automatic HTTPS Rewrites: On
I have a LetsEncrypt cert installed on the site over on GoDaddy, so I’m under the impression I can use the Full setting for SSL on CloudFlare? Is that correct? This still doesn’t really explain why my ISP is telling me the subdomain doesn’t exist at all
