I registered a new domain with Cloudflare Registrar tonight. My short-term goal is to just have the entire domain redirect to my youtube or facebook account to let some family easily find my videos until i can put a website up. I don’t crrently have any actual hosting.
My goal is to just redirect the domain as I have done with previous registrars.
My understanding from several blogs is you do this at Cloudflare through multiple steps - defining some dummy A records for www and the root @ domain to something like 192.0.2.0 so the bulk redirects will work.
Then you add a redirect list with an entry for the domain and the destination site.
Then you add a bulk redirect rule to activate the list.
I’ve done that - but am getting no resolution from outside Cloudflare for the domain. THe domain itself if queried shows a couple of A records pointing to Cloudflare IPs. It’s only been an hour or two since i registered the domain and set up the redirects - do I just need to wait or is it possible I’ve missed a step for doing this kind of redirect at the regitrar/dns lev el with Cloudflare without an underlying actual site yet?
