    Even if you signup directly to Cloudflare, you can't still use a subdomain. Cloudflare only works on TLD, gTLD and etc... , Cloudflare will not work on subdomain.

    The control panel integration for Cloudflare we use does not support subdomains.

    Instead, you can sign up with Cloudflare yourself (but then you're responsible for making sure your DNS records are correct!) or just don't use Cloudflare.

    Doesn't that mean that I can?

  • Did you check the knowledge base? https://infinityfree.net/support/find-your-ip/

  • Ops, sorry then.
    And, the subdomains and cloudflare should work fine?

    If you add a subdomain to Cloudflare then it won't work, they will only accept real TLD's like .com.

    No, you cannot use CloudFlare and subdomains in any way, only if @Admin decides to use CloudFlare for rf.gd domain, then you will be able to have SSL through CloudFlare fo example.
    If you want a free domain, use either eu.org or Freenom.

  • @MrJunior said:

    Yes, if you add the subdomain through your control panel and then add the appropriate DNS record to Cloudflare it will work fine.

    Please ignore the other replies here. I think the other people in the topic here are either confused with using free subdomains from our domains (like epizy.com) which are not supported by Cloudflare, or with the Cloudflare integration in the control panel, which does break subdomains. But neither of those issues affects you in this case.

  • Eh, I guess you haven't understood me, I mean I already have my own domain. And I want to create subdomains with cloudflare possibilities.

  • Admin, alright, thank you.

  • I've tried that way now. But that just redirects site to suspendeddomain.org
    Folder on ftp is created, cloudflares nameservers, cname record is set(screenshot there):
    !

    Did i do something wrong or forgot do something?

  • Still not solved

    Hello,
    the domain kjiaj1v1.epizy.com, your account's main domain, redirects to suspendeddomain.org, and that is why your domain also redirects there.

    Admin possibly meant something else, about creating an A record, but I am not that experienced so he may be able to help you better, what I just did is explain why it redirects to suspendeddomain.org.

    You shouldn't change your main domains CNAME if you have changed nameservers, just add a subdomain through control panel and then create a DNS Record through CloudFlare for your subdomain, not your main one.
    Your main domain is mrjunior.cf and subdomain is sub.mrjunior.cf

    Here it explains better what you need to do:https://infinityfree.net/support/find-your-ip/, and make your subdomain point to there. You can Also try the A records method as described there.
    I know that this is confusing, but there is no simpler way I could have said these.

  • As I read, A record need IP which can change anytime without warning and notification, not really good. I added the CNAME record how it explained in link you and admin gave me before. So I wondering what I did wrong.

    Btw: is your main domain works fine for you?(I mean, is that not redirects you) because I've never used this domain before.

    I may not have understood correctly, but I think that you should create a CNAME record for your subdomain, not your domain.

  • I also would like if my domain will work too, not only subdomain, or that way is only for subdomain?

  • @MrJunior said:

    Your domain works when you change your NS, there is nothing else you must do.
    The DNS settings are only for subdomains, I think.

  • I need to set up domain and subdomain without changing nameservers to infinityfree's.

  • @MrJunior said:

    You will need to change your namservers to cloudflare ones, not infinityfrees!
    And also it will be no problem for your domain, don't worry.

  • I already changed to cloudflare ones as needed, not infinityfrees!
    And also it being not no problem for my domain, i'm worried.

    Yes, if you add the subdomain through your control panel and then add the appropriate DNS record to Cloudflare it will work fine.

    Are you really so sure Admin? It seems like it is not working with @MrJunior

    First thing you need to understand is a primary domain name and a secondary (sub) domain.

    Primary domains are level access roots (or as I refer to them a corporate manner) like: example.com

    Secondary (sub) domains are secondary level access roots (sub roots) like: sub.example.com

    When establishing your primary domain (example.com) on Cloudflare you have to have your domain providers Name Servers set to InfinityFree’s Name Servers ns1.epizy.com and ns2.epizy.com.

    After you go through the Cloudflare settings to establish your primary domain (example.com) then you go back to your domain providers Name Servers and change them to the Name Servers provided by Cloudflare.

    After that’s setup it should auto populate your DNS Records as previously set by your Epizy Name Servers (it does it for me sometimes) if it doesn’t auto populate your DNS Records then follow the link above about finding your IP Address.

    After you successfully establish your primary domain (example.com) you can then set an A Record for your sub domain (sub.example.com).

    Then go to your InfinityFree Dashboard and setup your “Sub Domain” by typing the name of your A Record (sub) then once it’s completed InfinityFree will generate you another root folder (sub.example.com) and there’s an htdocs folder inside that where you’ll put your websites files.

    After that go to your sub domain (sub.example.com) and it’ll load your new secondary level access root website.

    That’s as “to the point” I think anyone on the forums can help you get.

    Please, don’t hesitate to let us know if you run into anymore issues. Just, please take your time and try to figure it out. If you do need further assistance, please provide the sub domain link you’re trying to create so we can help you further.

  • @Friendifie-Inc I can call that way "Just a harder way to set up A record" I'd to do that via CNAME, to avoid problems with IP changing
    @Admin can i finally get some help tho"

    Hi,
    What kind of help might you be needing?

    I think he’s just being negative because he still hasn’t gotten screenshot set by step instructions how to resolve his domain error. A lot of domain “know how” from someone who can’t even serve his own.

  • The simplest explain of the problem: i can't set up CNAME record right. I tried to do that like it explained https://infinityfree.net/support/find-your-ip/. But nope, site just unavailable.

  • edited June 11

    @Friendifie-Inc I tried your way baby. mrjunior.cf. I can give screenshot that cloudflare shows me A record DNS. Not CNAME that i looking for.

    UPD: btw, cloudflare ignores my site and not doing any things to this. But it says like "we did it and everything works", but nope.

    Actually it would be more convenient for you to create an A record since it's more good in my opinion..

    My steps:
    1. Go to Cloudflare DNS Settings
    2. Find your website IP
    3. Paste that website IP on the record.

    Also I may create a screenshot just for you if I have time. I can not really elaborately explain so sorry... So thats why I'm going to create a screenshot so that you can better understand.

  • @UnknownLolz
    I'll commit suicide faster than forum members will help me.
    I said that i need CNAME record.
    I said why i need that.
    I don't need your recommendations...
