Gateway DNS records

Once you create a gateway, Cloudflare automatically creates and adds records to your Cloudflare DNS so your gateway can receive and route traffic appropriately:

  • Ethereum gateways: Creates a proxied CNAME record pointing your hostname to ethereum.cloudflare.com.
  • IPFS gateways: Creates a proxied CNAME record pointing your hostname to ipfs.cloudflare.com and a TXT record with the value specified for its DNSLink.

These records cannot be edited within Cloudflare DNS. To make edits, you will have to edit the gateway configuration itself.

Existing DNS records

When you create a gateway using a hostname with pre-existing DNS records, Cloudflare automatically overwrites your existing records to make them apply to your Web3 gateway.
