I also want my domain removed from my site as I need to put it on a different one.
Using an IP address in this scenario is simply impossible. Some of the containers share the same IP. Thus a reverse proxy is needed to send traffic to the correct container. Which is why when you add a domain to your container you must add a CNAME to the domain provided by Glitch (or Fly.io).
wait but i dont want a cname because I dont want a subdomain
Interesting, does Glitch automatically assign each container a port?
You don’t have to have a subdomain
it asks for a ip address, and the sites button on fly.io isnt there
Then… change the record type
so i can leave the name part of a cname blank?
Are you on Cloudflare?
no i am using google domains
Then you can’t CNAME the root, I don’t know if GDomains does CNAME flattening, but if you use Cloudflare (f r e e), you can just pop a CNAME in the root and it will automatically flatten it.
alright ill look into cloudflare, and by free you mean if you already have a domain you dont have to pay anything, or how does that work
Cloudflare provides the DNS for free, it also has DDoS protection, and an Under-Attack mode, where it locks your site down.
alright thank you for that
