URl forwarding not working, but tinyurl forwarding working fine

My original domain is vicrobot.ml, and my target url is http://vicrobot13.pythonanywhere.com I am unable to forward my domain to this target url, but tinyurl redirection is working perfectly fine. So why isn’t Cloudflare redirection working?? I have added cname and page rules still not working

First you’ll want to register that domain. Then you might wanttot find a domain from a TLD that is better managed.

WHOIS lookup for VICROBOT.ML can temporarily not be answered. Please try again.

Then through whatever malarkey allows the root and www to actually resolve through my DNS provider…

If you want Cloudflare to redirect those hostnames they will need to be :orange: so they resolve to Cloudflare IPs. At the moment they don’t (among other fundamental issues) so Cloudflare can’t redirect traffic it never sees.

I am not sure why its not registered, i got it from freenom. And today i found that redirection is working. Yesterday i added url forwarding in freenom too. Idk which one (freenom or Cloudflare) is helping for redirection but its working.

How can we configure cloudflare domain to use for tinyurl custom domain
