Cloudflare subdomain setup guide

It is not necessary to register a new domain name for shortening links if you own one that works properly. Create a subdomain using a domain you already have.

Before using Cloudflare for a subdomain, enable the service for your main domain.

When your main domain is active in Cloudflare, add a subdomain.

  1. Log into your Cloudflare account.

  2. Select a DNS icon. cloudflare1

  3. Specify an "A-record", a subdomain name, and 52.21.33.16 value. cloudflare2

  4. Click on "Add record" on the right to finish.

  5. Go to the Short.cm account. Click on "Add new domain."

  6. Input a domain and subdomain to "Add your domain" field. cloudflare3

  7. Confirm your actions by clicking on "Add a domain." cloudflare5

  8. Wait a few hours and then refresh the domain status. cloudflare4
