Welcome to the Cloudflare Community. :logodrop:

You seem to have forgotten to create the hostname in your DNS. It is a quick and easy fix.

In your Cloudflare dashboard DNS app, add a AAAA record with the name @ and the discard prefix address of 100::. When you save the record, the name will appear as your domain name. As long as the hostname is :orange: proxied, your Page Rule should perform the desired redirect.

Thank you. That worked.

Just out of curiosity what is 100:: ?
I can see that it is a /64 but I am not seeing much more info on it in the cloudflare docs I have open regarding pages or url redirecting.
