URL forwarding backwards / opposite / inverse aka wrong


#1

I have put in as a page rule for my domain website.delivery to URL forward to website.com

however, the opposite has happened.

now when I type in my domain website.com it shows website.delivery as the permanent masked domain.

I had a CNAME with “name” as website.com and a value (“alias”) of website.delivery, I justed deleted and changed reversed, thinking this might be the issue, as nothing else makes sense


#2

You probably swapped the fields. But without actual addresses it is impossible to say anything.


#3

I want the website that shows to be FFD.com, but yesterday when someone typed that in it kept showing up as FFD.ordering.co which is the opposite of what I want to happen.


#4

Can you post a screenshot of the records in question (redact whatever needs redacting) and explain what you want to achieve eventually?

#6

Yes, as mentioned initially, you simply swapped the fields when entering the values. Whatever you want the CNAME to be should be an alias of your domain, not the other way.


#7

Thank you. So this should solve my issue and then I won’t need to do URL forwarding, right?


#8

If you want foodfixdelivery.ordering.co.foodfixdelivery.com to point to your domain, yes. However, depending on your server configuration, you might also have to configure that on your server.


#9

The ffd.com is my domain I want both of the sites to point to


#10

The problem is your naked domain is not set up in the first place. You need to create an A record for @ and point it to your IP.


#11

I have an A record with “www” and “*” do I need to remove one or both of these before I add the “@” record?


#12

Well, your DNS setup seems to be right at this point but your server does not respond to Cloudflare.


#13

Any recommendations?


#14

What do you mean, it doesn’t respond to Cloudflare?

And how can I resolve this?


#15

By contacting your host and asking why your server is not working.


#16

. The issue has been resolved but now when i try to do a URL forward my foodfixdelivery.com page stops working. :tired_face:

I would try it the other way because they seems to make more sense to me, however I get multiple error messages.
