My site is running on a CPanel server and I use a Cloudflare Free account. DNS is with the CPanel server rather than Cloudflare (it’s actually with a 3rd party DNS provider but I just make the necessary changes to the zone there).
Things work fine for my domain name and I have www as a CNAME entry pointing to www.mydomain.co.uk.cdn.cloudflare.net.
I have a subdomain that runs a different CMS. How do I get this to run on Cloudflare? In CPanel I go to the Cloudflare section and click domains. I can see the subdomain as an A record pointing to the server’s IP and I click the “on” button to use cloudflare and that goes green. The entry stays as an A record though, I was hoping it would change into a CNAME that I could copy and enter into my third party DNS provider but as an A record it won’t go through Cloudflare.
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
