On cloudflare DNS i have created two NS records both pointing to
ns1.epizy.com and ns2 --. This being said I am still unable to add comain to cPanel. I’m able to change it directly from the registrar site but am i able to leave them on the cloudflare nameservers and manage dns from cloudflare and point it here?
You will want to setup A records on Cloudflare, not NS records.
I will show you how to easily set up Cloudflare, Edit Records, and Troubleshoot with images!
PLEASE READ BEFORE STARTING!!!
Cloudflare cannot be used on free subdomains from InfinityFree.
You can use Cloudflare on Custom Domains ( yoursite.com) and with Custom Sub-Domains ( subdomain.yoursite.com).
A video tutorial can be found at the end of this guide, should you get stuck.
You must connect your domain to your InfinityFree account first. Read more here.
Go to Dash…
Yep im aware that the control panel cloudflare is bad, I’m using my own account from normal cloudflare. This is a custom domain.
So to be straight inbtead of NS records I use A records? how would that work?
so mine-wind.ml points to ns1 and another A record pointing to ns2.
This most probably will not work here
This is what you need to do
Before you can add your domain name to your hosting account, you need to point it to the InfinityFree nameservers.
The nameservers of your domain name are a setting at your domain registrar to allow you to host a domain name with a different provider. So you need to change these settings at the site where you bought your domain name. Most registrars have different panels and we can’t cover them all in this guide. For this guide, we’ll use
NameSilo as an example.
Step 0: Find the correct namese…
The OP wants to use Cloudflare, not Infinity’s nameservers.
@CoolGozo69, follow the guide I linked if you want to use Cloudflare.
Oh i didn’t realize it was full guide, I thought it was a blurb. I will read through and attempt and let you know.
Right, but in order to do that domain still need to point to
ns1.epizy.com and ns2.epizy.com first.
Once domain is added to hosting account, then your guide will come in handy. OP obviously did not read
Oh now connecting to the site it redirects me to:
What A records are you using? In order to get the IP to use, you need to add the domain to an InfinityFree account first.
As the guide states, you must have the domain added to an account. You need to change your nameservers at your registrar to
ns1.epizy.com and ns2.epizy.com, add the domain to a InfinityFree account, then follow the guide correctly.
Oh damn. I forgot to do that
Just added ns1 and ns2 to registrar and added domain to infinityfree and now getting this error. nameservers still in place and ip and hosting volume is set
Please note that bumping topics is in violation of the
Also, note that DNS changes can take 72 hours to take affect, so you may not see your site for a few hours.
You’ve added a new domain name to your account, just changed your nameservers or recently modified some DNS settings. However, they aren’t working yet. You’ve discovered already that it’s not working yet because of something called “DNS Propagation”. But what does that mean?
Introduction to DNS
Before you can understand how DNS Propagation works, you need to understand how DNS itself works. So let’s start with that.
Servers on the internet are identified by a set of numbers called an IP addres…
In any case, it’s working for me, and displays the text below.
eoin is cool
Yeah, that’s the index html file. Howcome for me it’s not working? Cleared cookies and refreshed with f5 and still the same. And if i dont add http:// before typing domain it gives protocol error when usually it just redirects to http - could this be htaccess file?
Open CMD (if windows)
ipconfig /release (your internet my get disconnected)
Probably, or get a free SSL certificate for better security.
still shows me a 404 page, are you able to connect? I’m gonna remove everything off cloudflare and set it to default
Yes, I am able to see the website with the text = eoin is cool.
works for me when translating it in google translate and adding link.
But somehow it’s on my end. Can you think of any fixes i’m at a loss.
Restart your machine, restart your router, wait till your ISP cache is reset or try from another device or network.
tried on another device same network and same issue. others on different network it works. connected to mobile data on that same device and the issue was fixed. it’s my home network.
ISP cache normally stays for 24 hours. So just wait another day?
