Connecting your Cloudflare domain

Subscription note

If you're not on a paying plan you will not receive SSL or Root Domain Redirection. Due to this, you'll only see one DNS record.

This document has a prerequisite

You'll need to already have completed the steps in our custom domain configuration document.

With the 1-3 records you have within your Unstack settings page, you'll follow these steps.

Here's a run-down of how we'll reference these records in a human-friendly way throughout this document:

Record Name Record Type Record Description
WWW Record CNAME This record has a HOST of "www" and is named the www record since it hosts/establishes the hosting of your domain.
Root Domain Record A Record This record has a HOST of either nothing (blank) or "@" depending on your host. Within GoDaddy, you'll use "@."
SSL Record CNAME This record has a HOST which begins with an underscore (_) you'll need to verify the HOST and VALUE are both correct.
  1. Once logged into your Cloudflare dashboard, click the appropriate Cloudflare account for the domain you'd like to connect and click the DNS app.
  2. The UI interface for adding DNS records appears under "DNS Records". This graphic from Cloudflare will help you navigate the input form:

  3. Click the "Add Record" and select record type (WWW & SSL Record will be "CNAME", the Root Domain is "A Record").
  4. Input "Name" value (found in Unstack records table)& "Target" (A Record), the "IPv4"("Value" in Unstack records).

Troubleshooting

If showing "Pending" within Unstack, this could be due to leaving proxying on (indicated by an orange cloud to the right of the DNS record).
You can disable this by clicking "Edit >" then clicking "Proxied".
