Need help with Freenom and Cloudflare stuff
ChezCoder (1613)

I am using Freenom and Cloudflare to host my personal site. But there is a problem. Either Cloudflare is not connecting to Freenom or repl is not connecting to Cloudflare. Please help!

So this is a common problem. I have tried the exact thing that you are doing. And it wouldn't work for me either. It seems the problem is the .tk or .ml and etc. at the end of the website URL. Its because FreeNOM is not very good with third-parties. If you are trying to do port forwarding. Just use FreeNOM's built in DNS. For DDoS protection. Idk.

@Crcoli7307 yeah but I want to remove the www part in the domain, which freenom doesn't support (the @ symble for root).

@ChezCoder Oh. So, idk how you plan on doing that. Maybe a special URL shortener? If you want to do that easily. Just pay 10 bucks for a .com domain.

@Crcoli7307 Confused?? Im trying to add DNS records that Freenom doesn't provide, which is why im using Cloudflare.

@ChezCoder Idk man, you'd have to use a different DNS. I've tried it with Cloudflare and it didn't work either XD. Try making your own DNS in JS or something.
