Cloudflare is a popular free DNS service that can be used to directly to create a CNAME apex record with their rewriting feature.

Two things to keep in mind if using Cloudflare:

  • The validation record should not be proxied
  • The routing record can be proxied - but if proxy is enabled on the routing record, full end-to-end encryption must be enabled in the Cloudflare's SSL/TLS settings
