I was looking for a way to direct traffic from a subdomain (from.example.com) to a different target altogether (to.another.com). I thought I’d found the answer with the URI record which says it forwards from a [name] to a [target]. I created a record like this:
URI from 1 "http://to.another.com" 10 DNS Only
But this seems to have no effect.
So what is the purpose of the URI record in Cloudflare DNS? When would it be appropriate to use it?
And is the only way to actually direct traffic from a name to a target via page rules? It seems a shame to spend page rules doing something this simple.
