Is a www CNAME record also necessary when using apex-loadbalancer.netlify.com?

My DNS is set with Cloudflare with all proxy settings turned off (DNS only), therefore, SSL is being issued by Netlify on the main domain.

In Cloudflare, I have a CNAME record set up and assigned to apex-loadbalancer.netlify.com.

If I want www covered as well, must I add another CNAME record with mysite.netlify.app?

Hi @djmtype,

When using apex-loadbalancer.netlify.com, it’s important to use only ALIAS, ANAME, or flattened CNAME. I know Cloudflare supports the latter and I believe it supports the other 2 too. So in that case, you don’t need the www CNAME entry.

Much appreciated :+1:
