#StackBounty: #domain-name-system #email #domain #subdomain #cname-record Configure cloudflare subdomains for mailchimp

Bounty: 100

I’ve managed to successfully configure mailchimp with cloudflare (using CNAME and TXT records as advised here: https://bobandedovic.com/blog/technology/how-to-authenticate-a-domain-name-on-mailchimp-using-cloudflare-cname-bypass-solution).

The problem is that I need it to work for subdomains instead (e.g. email.[mydomain].com).

I’m reluctant to just play about with the DNS records until it works since I appreciate the DNS takes time to refresh and I don’t want to have to re-authenticate with mailchimp every time.

Question

Does anybody know how the CNAME and TXT records should look when using subdomains as opposed to just the root?

For example, CNAME is currently:

k1._domainkey (pointing to dkim.mcsv.net)

Should this be:

k1._domainkey.[mySubDomain] instead?

And TXT file is currently:

[myDomain].com (pointing to v=spf1 include:servers.mcsv.net)

Should this be:

[mySubDomain].[myDomain].com instead?

Any help or pointers in the right direction very much appreciated with this one, in desperate need of getting it configured asap.
