Subdomain to DNS aws

Cheers.
I have a doubt. I have a DNS from my load balancer in aws. And I want a subdomain in cloudflare to call my DNS in aws. HOW CAN I DO THE CLOUDFLARE DNS CONFIGURATION.
Can you help me with the settings

Please help


Hi there,

It’s not clear exactly what hostname you’re trying to create a CNAME to, but if you imagine your AWS ELB had a hostname like this:

my-loadbalancer-1234567890.us-west-2.elb.amazonaws.com

You would enter that exactly into the Content field of the DNS screen. Do note that because you have “orange-clouded” the DNS record, publicly the DNS response will not contain my-loadbalancer-1234567890.us-west-2.elb.amazonaws.com and will actually show Cloudflare IPs, which is fine because that’s how Cloudflare will proxy traffic for you.
