Would just like to ask if this can be done. Doing a CloudFlare partial CNAME setup for a website (Since we cannot go the normal route and change the nameservers to CloudFlare's) problem is it cannot be done on the root level, only for subdomains (www and other subdomain). I'm ok with that except i'm just worried about the root domain.
- A Record for root domain (domain.com) pointing to server IP
CNAME Record for www (www.domain.com) pointing to CloudFlare server then back to the server IP
- Can this be done and will this work properly? (I mean the A record for root, and CNAME record for www)
- If A record isn't added, what will happen if users go to domain.com and not www.domain.com?
The www isn't really a problem since it will surely go to CloudFlare's server, it's just the root domain I'm worried about (domain.com).
Sorry, fairly new with DNS management and I don't have a way of testing this as we are working on a live site.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
