Problem adding my own domain - configuring

Hi! Im new to this and don’t know what to do. I have a domain from Loopia I want to point on from Digital ocean. I got help from Loopia to configure with CNAME at their side, but I still have problem. The configuring is just looping. They told me that is´s problably something with cloudflare that´s not correct. How do I check that? Do I need something else than just a CNAME on their DNS-editor?

Hello @makeupbyseasonexamgmailcom

You’ll need to update the DNS records from your Cloudflare account.

You can either add CNAME or A record, this depends on what you’re trying to achieve.

Keep in mind that DNS changes will take some time in order to update.

This is their docs on how to manage DNS records:
