What I’m trying to do is the following:
I have a domain name. I want to forward that domain name to a linktr.ee (but only the root and www). Then, I want to connect the subdomain ‘blog’ to my webhosting. However, I want to keep the e-mail forwarding that my domain registrar offers me. The problem is that the registrar only offers that forwarding as long as I use their nameservers. So ideally I’d set up different NS records with my registrar just for the ‘blog’ subdomain, to point that alone to my webhosting. But then I can’t use cloudflare, right? Because cloudflare doesn’t let you only do a subdomain afaik. But then if I would set cloudflare NS for the domain, the e-mail forwarding would break.
So how should I go about this? Should I just… connect my domain to my webhosting completely, and then connect cloudflare, and set up page rules to forward the root and www? and then just configure the mail settings in my webhosting to forward to gmail? but that would add another step and make it less reliable… because then it would arrive to my webhosting’s inbox and be forwarded from there, instead of the e-mail address just sending to gmail directly…
Sorry, maybe I’m being dumb here, but I’m quite inexperienced with all this, so I’m just getting a bit lost.
