Recently signed up for CloudFlare Plus through SiteGround. When I activated CF for a subdomain, it said www was required for it to work. However, I don’t want a www.subdomain.domain.com. The site was already set up without the www. The www version is showing under CF’s SSL tab.
Do I HAVE to use the www? If so, why? If not, then how do I remove it?
I think this might be affecting the WAF rules that I’ve set up. The rules are working for the root domain but they aren’t working for the subdomain.
In particular, I have one rule that blocks traffic when “URI” “Contains” “wp-admin”. This works great for the root.
