A few hours ago, I bought a domain. I want to set this domain as a mirror of another website, so I changed my domain nameservers to cloudflare and added the dns record of the website I want to be a mirror of. From my computer, the website/mirror is working without a problem, but from one of my friend’s computer, the website/mirror is not working (This site can’t be reached). Why?
I heard when you change your domain nameservers to cloudflare and add the dns record of the website that you want to be a mirror of, you need to wait 24 hours, and then everyone can see your website/mirror. is that right?
I did not do this without permission from the owner of the website. We are partners, and he knows about this. in fact, he guided me till now, and the reason I am asking these questions here is: I do not want to ask too many questions from him and annoy him.
The key part is having a server that’s properly configured. If it’s properly configured, then it will respond to requests for the host name in the URL. In your friend’s case, they would have to configure the server to respond for their domain name (which it already does) and yours as well (which it shouldn’t…yet).
