What CName do I use for forwarding?

Hi - what CName do I use if my domain is with GoDaddy as the registrar but I am using Cloudflare to forward to an https (which godaddy can’t do)? I did update the nameservers at GoDaddy to the Cloudflare nameservers so I think I did that correctly but am confused about the CName field here at Cloudflare. TIA!

Hi @poshnsass,

If it’s a redirect you want to do, a CNAME isn’t what you are looking for. You will need a DNS record and a page rule to handle the redirect.

Hi @domjh - Thank you, is this what I do even if the first domain(the one I am forwarding) is just being parked?

Oh never mind the other response, I kinda followed those instructions and seems to be working! Thanks again!
