I have a domain that is hosted & dns managed on Cloudflare. I am now taking this site which was hosted on my server, and want to park the domain to a “paid parking” service.
There are two ways they suggestion parking on their domain. The first way is to use custom name servers
NS2.XXXX.COM. As this is a FREE Cloudflare domain, there is no way to change DNS from the provided Cloudflare domains. HOWEVER the service also provides another way to do this by a CNAME METHOD and here is what they suggest the following CNAME ENTRIES
www set to the site they gave me
(blank) set to the site they gave me
* set to the site they gave me
TTL was set to auto
I was able to successfully change the WWW and the * … and even turned off the HTTPS and took the proxy off of the CNAME entries … and it’s been about an hour or two and the site is STILL resolving to the old hosted site (I understand propagation, but, most other times making a change like this, it had been changed by now)
ARE THERE OTHER CHANGES I SHOULD MAKE TO MAKE THIS WORK ???
