Signing up and Sub Domain

#1

Hi - New to cloudflare and want to get the inital setup correct. I have a domain that I want to use for an emcommerce platform. To get to the ecommrce side from the otehr website I want to use a subdomain.

so main site is domain.com and ecommerce site woudl be learnmore.domain.com

When I signed up I added domain. Now I jsut need a CNAME for learnmore Is that correct?

Thanks in advance

It sounds like they’re part of the same domain. You need all hostnames in DNS here if you’re using Cloudflare.

Yes, its correct i think… but you need to create subdomain first in your hosting provider to avoid error. after that, add your subdomain in your cloudflare account .

EX:

Type: CNAME
Name: learnmore
Value: domain.com

Thank you I think I was wrong. I am trying to get learnmore to point to ugly ecommerce link. So when client clicks learnmore there are directed to learnmore.domain.com

Does the ecommerce service have instructions to connect a custom domain / subdomain? You will need to add whatever records they need for the service to work.
