Workers Sites with a custom domain in Cloudflare Registrar

Hi there,

just started using Worker Sites! Really excited to see this feature. The good news, I can work through the quick start tutorial an dmake everything work on workers.dev. That all works like a charm. :+1:

Next I tried to make it work on a domain I transferred to Cloudflare Registrar. Unfortunately I can’t make it work on my custom domain (raupach.io).

$ cat wrangler.toml
account_id = "hidden"
name = "www"
type = "webpack"
workers_dev = false

[site]
bucket = "./public"
entry-point = "workers-site"

[env.www]
zone_id = "hidden"
route = "raupach.io/*"

I can publish, but the site does not get resolved. Which isn’t surprising because I don’t have any DNS records set for the domain. I only parked it at Cloudflare.

$ dig raupach.io

Question is: how to make it work? Do I need to setup a CNAME record pointing to workers.dev?

with kind regards

Solved it. All it takes is adding an A record pointing to 192.2.0.1.
