DNS configuration

I tried to follow the directions below but wasn’t able to turn http://makingwebsiteswithr.rbind.io/
to https://makingwebsiteswithr.rbindio. The original website is makingwebsiteswithr.netlify.com
Is it something wrong in my account?

Thank you so much!

Hi, @denizCvrl, and welcome to our Netlify community site.

I do see the custom domain added here:

https://app.netlify.com/sites/makingwebsiteswithr/settings/domain

However, the required DNS records for that custom domain point to Cloudflare, not Netlify:

$ dig makingwebsiteswithr.rbind.io +noall +answer

; <<>> DiG 9.10.6 <<>> makingwebsiteswithr.rbind.io +noall +answer
;; global options: +cmd
makingwebsiteswithr.rbind.io. 299 IN	A	104.31.76.168
makingwebsiteswithr.rbind.io. 299 IN	A	104.31.77.168

The solution is to create a CNAME record (instead of these A records) which point to the Netlify subdomain. There is more information about this here:

https://docs.netlify.com/domains-https/custom-domains/configure-external-dns/#configure-a-subdomain

Once that is done and the records above expire (which should take five minutes due to the TTL values), the custom domain should point to the Netlify site above.

If there are other questions or this doesn’t solve the issue, please let us know.

Thank you Luke. I am sure this will solve the problem but I guess I cannot change it to CNAME. I contacted rbind community (where I got the address: https://github.com/rbind/support/issues/547) how to change it but I guess it is what it is (https://github.com/rbind/support/issues/552)
Is there any other way to do it? I am sorry. For newbies, these are complicated issues. It is a whole new language which I am eager to learn.

Ok, as far as i understand i already have https subdomain but i need to redirect http://makingwebsiteswithr.rbind.io and makingwebsiteswithr.netlify.com to https://makingwebsiteswithr.rbind.io. Thank you so much again Luke.

We cannot do that with the Cloudflare CDN in front of our CDN. There is more about this here:
