I have a custom domain for my cloudflare worker page. Should the cname record be proxied?
Yes, If your worker is on the route
worker.example.com must be proxied. If the CF proxy is disable and CF isn’t receiving traffic, the worker will never trigger.
Does the url i use as value for the cname record matter? Or does the cloudflare proxy just automatically redirect the request to the worker when there’s a worker with a corresponding domain name, regardless of what the actual cname record is?
If you’re using a subdomain purely for workers, it should be an
A record with the IP
192.0.2.1 (a reserved example IP). If a worker is set up for the entire subdomain like
worker.example.com/* it will always go to the worker and never to the backend IP, unless your worker itself tries to
fetch() the subdomain.
