Repl not connecting to DNS

I have set the CNAME as instructed (after setting freenom DNS to cloudflare), but Cloudflare says that there is CNAME flattening. Is this why the repl will not connect to the domain and sits there loading?

I don't have traffic going through cloudflare and it works for me.

@Vandesm14 - I disabled the orange cloud icon before clicking the blue button.

@themaka You are using subdomains for your sites. Try using the root domain as a site: CNAME Record @ xxxxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx.repl.co

I've been getting the same problem, please let me know if you find the solution.

@TheDrone7 The solution, for us, is to get the IP of the repl and set an A record to that. but the IP of the repl is masked, so it won't go though.

I'll see if I can get the domain connected via A record

@Vandesm14 oh ok. Good luck with that.
