If you are ready to verify your Help Center custom domain with Cloudflare, here is what you need to do:

  • First, you need to go to settings and set up your custom domain there. Check this article on how to do it.

  • Then, once you set up your custom Help Center domain (for example docs.yourprojectdomain.com ), click on "Save settings" button. You will see the yellow message under custom domain: "We are deploying your SSL certificate, hang on, it will take around 20 minutes".

  • After setting up settings in Customerly, go to the Cloudflare account and follow their documentation here to set up a CNAME DNS record for the chosen subdomain.

  • Disable the Proxied and use DNS only.

WARNING: You have to disable their proxy and use DNS only otherwise your help center will not work. To disable the proxy, read the Cloudflare documentation here.
