How To Create A Subdomain In CloudFlare 2020 – How To Add A Subdomain In CloudFlare


Jo , New York – My Experience with #Justhost – Here is the my experience with #Justhost. few day ago my web site(WordPress) hacked. I submit ticket for #Justhost for recover my website from backup. Here is what they said. ******************************** Hi, Website ******.com is looking good for me. How and where can I see it has been hacked? Please point me to exact URL. But if you wish entire account “lotusws” to be restored from backup I can do it right now. Note: we have the backup from Nov 23rd. Thank you, Alexander ******************************** I asked therm to proceed restore from backup. after they delete all my websites. they said “We don’t have a backup”. I was really shocked but they even didn’t say sorry. It is more than big mistake but it seems they don’t care for what they have done to customer. I’m considering lawsuit against #Justhost for my loss of entire websites. They should be responsible for what they have done to customer.


This is a simple guide on how to add a subdomain to CloudFlare. There are two ways to do it via a CNAME or A record but if you’re needing to point it to another hostname you must use a CNAME record.

    The TLDR is if you're wanting the easiest way and the subdomain exists on the same server use a CNAME record (and point it at root using the @ symbol), if you want to point the domain to another IP Address you need to use an A record. Finally, if you need to point it at another hostname such as on teachable or a CDN like Stackpath you must use a CNAME and point it to the domain they give you.

    Thanks for the video! Still doesn't solve my issue. I want to create subdomain on my hosting and connect it like this via cloudflare but struggle to make it work. "404 The server can not find the requested page" Could it be an issue that there is already WordPress installed in root domain and then the subdomain gets lost? What would be a solution to this?

    With a subdomain can we use another template? For example, I have a blog, but I want to create a store, but I want it to be myblog.com/store and don't want to pay for another web hosting. I would like to you the one I already have. Is that possible? I actually never tried to create the subdomain because of this doubt.

    Hi I got a question I just created an A record subdomain my domain and hosting are different, but the domain provider give me and Ip address but it didn't work, they said "No. It's not linked with a folder with the website, Website doesn't link with the folder contains the data, now the subdomain is not tied to any directory. So it's confusing. domain was in Time.ru but my hosing is in Bluehost.

    I found it helpful. However, it was a little confusing at first. If possible, try to dumb it down a little bit. Explain in more detail how your specific examples work. This way, it can be more helpful for non-IT people like me.

    Yo man! Thank you so much for sharing! Very informative! ^^
    Got a question:
    Does it include a free ssl certificate on a subdomains?
    I mean the cloudflare.com implement a free ssl certificate too on subdomains?
