How can I set up a CNAME on my Cloudflare provider?

Properly setting up CNAMES for your hosting provider helps ensure that any changes required for your custom domain can be carried out with maximum efficiency and minimum disruption! Setting up a CNAME on your Cloudflare provider is a piece of cake!

Here's how to do it:

1. Log into your Cloudflare account.

2. Locate and select your domain from the drop-down menu at the top left.

3. Select the DNS Settings tab.

4. Add the CNAME records. Note that it needs to point to a fully qualified domain name.

5. Set the Cloudflare Proxy Toggle icon to a grey cloud.

If your site address is 
mydomain.com then your Moosend login page is mydomain.moosend.com. You have to add a CNAME record to your DNS for your domain, a subdomain similar to the newsletter.mydomain.com example. Whatever your CNAME record is, it will need to point to mydomain.moosend.com.

Please note that it may take at least 30 minutes for any changes you've made to propagate around the web.
