I have configured a subdomain
blog.example.net with dreamhost like this
blog CNAME mygreatblog.ghost.io
blog.example.net points to
mygreatblog.ghost.io via a CNAME record.
I can confirm the properly set CNAME here:
However, when I actually visit
blog.example.net I keep ending up on a different website - a gitlab instance that I also host under a different subdomain on
I can even confirm that there is a wrong A record stored that points to an IP that I don't recognize (it seems to be some cloudflare-network IP):
Now this is what I tried:
- Open blog.example.net in an incognito window
- Refresh DNS at dreamhost, where the domain is registered with the nameservers
- Wait 12 hours
- Flush DNS cache at Google and OpenDNS
What I would like to do: Purge the cache of cloudflare. However, I don't even have an account with cloudflare (at least none that I am aware of). My gitlab instance uses cloudflare somehow but I can't find any documentation on that.
So my question:
Is this a DNS caching issue?
If yes, why did the dns flushes have no effect?
If this is not a DNS caching issue, what else could it be?
