If you use Webflow’s Set root domain as default domain guide, it states:
Access your domain’s DNS settings, and add two records:
- An ANAME or CNAME record for the root domain (host: @)
- A CNAME record for the www subdomain
We have no A records at all (see Cloudflare DNS-only screenshot above), but Webflow’s latest update today notes, “Update A records to improve site load speed and reduce redirects”.
Are CNAME-only sites unaffected by today’s post, as CNAME records only point to
proxy-ssl.webflow.com already? From my limited research, CNAME records are used in lieu of A name records and CNAME records must point to a domain (never an IP address).
Perhaps this is beyond the scope of the forum, so perhaps I’ll contact Webflow directly. Goodness knows, hosting & DNS records are one of the banes of my existence.
