Hi I joined Cloudflare set up my domain mtamo.co.uk so that I could install Nginx Proxy Manager for my Unraid server. I received email confirmation that the domain was setup so I created A records for my Sky IP Address and MX records from my domain registrar, I also noticed that there was another A record for the IP address for the registrar( easyspace) Then I tried to setup my domain as either a “A”or “CName” record as per the notification but received error 1004.
As a novices I am looking some advice on where I am going wrong as I feel that the DNS is not correct and may be causing a conflict between My IP Address and the registrar IP Address.
I appreciate your reply. I feel that i have a problems with A records as i move over my domain from my original registrar and changed the Name Servers at original registrar , however when i received an email that it was active the original IP address was included, then I install A record for my broadband providers IP address so i have 2 A records (www) plus the MX records.
My domain was purchased for personal emails only so i decided to use it for Cloudflare to use for Nginx after see various videos. I have since have error 1016. I just need guidance or instruction to understand.
I have removed one A record leaving the Providers IP. On the DNS setup page it is requesting I set up ‘Add an A, AAAA, or CNAME record for your root domain so that mtamo.xx.xx will resolve.” This one area that I am struggling , please see screenshot. Cloudflare seems setup as there is activity in analytics. Totally at a loss ?
After reading Cloudflare documents it seems that i need the ip address for my domain. which was with the registrar. I included this and finally able to create an A record however, on testing i had the error 522 which has to do with the host provider. How can i solve this ?
I think that the issue is " * The origin IP address in your Cloudflare DNS app does not match the IP address currently provisioned to your origin web server by your hosting provider." ?
I was think of registering the domain with Cloudflare so they control everything good or bad idea , unless there is another solution?
If it is correct to assume that you have no intention of serving content or running services on the apex or www names, you don’t need any A/AAAA/CNAME records for them. The apex requires MX records so your email gets delivered, of course.
Sure. Create an A record for the relevant hostname(s) and enter the public IPv4 address of your Nginx server. If you are on IPv6, create an AAAA record instead. This asumes that you have already correctly configured all the equipment and services that are operating on that IP.
I am afraid that A record for Nginx server did not work error 1004. Ngnix and various other apps are on unRaid server(I believe that this host?) IP address xxx.xxx.x,xx which allocates its IP address with port to each of 10 host. of which only Ngnix is not working as I am only a CName record but this causes errors.
I am so confused now on how to obtain a IP address for my domain?
