Overview

 

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CLOUDFLARE:

The following article guide applies to only Grid services that were provisioned prior to January 1, 2016.

 

 

You can easily add a subdomain to your CloudFlare service. This article will show you how!

A subdomain is a domain that is a subsection of what is often called a parent domain. For example, example.com is a parent domain, while store.example.com is a subdomain of example.com. www.example.com is also technically a subdomain.

Before you start

You will need to have your subdomain already added to your Grid. For detailed instructions, please see: Add a domain or subdomain.

Instructions

  1. On the Overview page, scroll down to your Add-On Services section. Click on the Admin button to the right of your CloudFlare service.
