Override URL or IP address

Cloudflare Page Rules allows you to override the URL or IP address of a request. This feature is currently available for domains on the Enterprise plan.

A common use case for this functionality is when you are serving an application from a particular URI ( In this case, the app may live on another server and may even be hosted by a third party. Requests to this endpoint must be directed to the server for that third party application. You can specify a CNAME host, as long as the CNAME record exists within the Cloudflare DNS.

To make sure you have full control of these records, it is recommended that you set the Resolve Override within the same zone name.

To configure a resolve override in Page Rules, do the following:

  1. Create a DNS record (either CNAME or A record) for your domain.

    • This example shows a CNAME record setup to point to

      • Type: CNAME
      • Name:
      • Target:
      • TTL: Auto
      • Proxy status: Proxied
    • This example uses an A record to point to a web server IP address.

      • Type: A
      • Name:
      • IPv4 address:
      • TTL: Auto
      • Proxy status: Proxied
  2. Create a page rule to override a URL or an IP address.

    The following example page rule configuration would send all requests from a folder (/app) to an AWS S3 bucket:

    • If the URL matches:*
    • Setting: Resolve Override | Value:
    • Setting: Host Header Override | Value:
