Hello, I have a domain name, linked to Cloudflare account (with Cloudflare DNS).
I read here that I can use it like that:
If you have your own domain name and want to manage your DNS through Cloudflare, that’s possible as well. To do that, first disable Cloudflare through our control panel, then login to your Cloudflare account and add your domain through there. Cloudflare will scan our nameservers and set the appropriate records for your domain. They will also give you two nameservers which you need to set for your domain name through your registrar instead of our nameservers.
But I can’t simply make this step - “add your domain through there”, because I need to add ip for CNAME, and ns1.byet.org is not working. What should I do?
Thank you, it sort-of worked. But now my site redirects to [suspendeddomain(.)org. I’ve read this article, but I still don’t understand the reason. In my Cloudflare account I created CNAME for my domain, leading to 51yu7ksf.epizy.com (my Main domain). It would think it’s related to DNS caching, but usually domains proxied through Cloudflare updates pretty fast. And I also tried accessing my domain through proxies, with same result.
The reason is actually in the article you linked to yourself, specifically in the paragraph “The domain is not attached to any hosting account”. Because your account currently only has a subdomain assigned to it, not any custom domains.
And I would also like to point out the bold section at the top of the article which @Niekon shared:
To add your domain name to your account, you MUST point it to the nameservers! Simply pointing the domain to your account IP will not allow you to add the domain name to your account! You can only do this after the domain name has been added to your account.
