DNS Question

How would you use Cloudflare to delegate records to your NS? I have tried defining NS and A records without success. Not sure what a registrar is doing differently.

Overall how would you register a nameserver NS/A without using a registrar.

Comments

  • Did you add your domain to cloudflare & add cloudflare's nameserver to your domain?

  • In the past yes. I know dns very well, so not sure what i missed.

  • in that case did you open a ticket with them?

  • No, dont see reason to. Just figuring this out on my own and trying to understand what im missing.

  • i don't under stand the question so i will tell you the basics

    add the NS servers provided by Cloud Flare to change the default name Registers provided by your register

    then wait for 18-24 hour for cloud flare to detect the domains then all goes as smoothly

    what can you do wrong is adding records to default name server provided by your register
    so find the option to change the name name servers from default ones provided by your register to Cloud flare provided ones.

    Make your choice on your own But i can help you to make them right.

  • It sounds like you're trying to set up vanity dns servers. It can be done but not on the free plan.

  • No, trying to use CF as a springboard to delegate to my own NS from CF.

    Which sounds like vanity nameservers. You need to be able to specify NS records in the CF DNS, which can't be done in their free tier. Suggest you try Rage4 for that.

    NS records can be created on free.

    No @aglodek you could well be right, OP needs to describe exactly what he is looking to achieve and state whether he is on free/paid Cloudflare

    I do not want vanity NS. I am trying to forward delegate the DNS to another NS via cloudflare. as in whois points to CF, then CF has NS records to forward to me.

    I don't believe this is possible with the root domain. It may be possible to delegate a subdomain on CF though, although I appreciate this is not what you're looking to do.

    I'm happy to be proven wrong if that helps you any :)

  • What is the difference between a ns and glue record? From my understanding I need a glue record to delegate.
