I'm using cloudflare with my yola site. My domain name is www.thelastcenturybook.com and I keep getting the error "this domain is not pointed correctly". I've set up the A records. what am i doing wrong?

Hello trent

According to the independent domain look-up tool kloth.net your domain is currently not pointing to Yola correctly. The IP addresses displayed are not Yola's IP addresses. Your two A records must point to 184.72.229.176. Please check your domain settings with cloudflare again.

After the first correct set-up, it can take up to 48 hours for domain pointing to become effective. Let me know if it doesn't work after this period of time.

Hello trent,

There seems to be a loop detected for both your www and the non-www. You need to contact cloudfare again concerning this.

Please refer cloudfare to the Yola Tutorial: Publish to a domain you already own

I've double checked my cloudflare account. my a records are correctly pointed to 184.72.229.176, I'm not sure why kloth.net displays something different. Does yola not work with cloudflare's network? Is there something i could check that may be off besides the a records?
