Discourse shows on IP Address but not Domain Name after Discourse Install

  • Posted March 2, 2015

Im using Cloudflare with Digital Ocean with a domain I just purchased from 1and1. I setup cloudflare easily, link to picture here: I setup my name servers on 1and1 accordingly: I setup discourse using ubuntu:

I didn’t touch anything with the DNS in DO because It’s going through cloudflare. My discourse comes up fine under, but not

Am I missing something? I’ve installed discourse before with a bluehost domain, but that domain had hosting through bluehost as well, and I didnt go through cloudflare. Do I have to purchase hosting through 1and1 still??? I was under the impression I didn’t have to if I went through cloudflare with DO, maybe I’m wrong.

Thank you for your help in advance.

I see Discourse on both. Wait for your DNS cache to expire.
