    I'm trying out a new installation from scratch. The errors continued. I'll see what happens now

    I installed all over again, but the error persists.

    If you do "ping" can check that point to the ip nameserver.

    The server that I have is OVH, they offered me a master nameserver, and associating a domain from the panel, they also offered me another dns, however both point to different IP addresses.

    Vps57031.vps.ovh.ca specifically points to the dedicated IP is 158.69.207.253; and secondary dns is sdns1.ovh.ca points to 8.33.137.137

    The issue with CloudFlare is not that it doesn't return any info. They don't support the outdated DNS_ANY, but they support DNS_ALL, which will return all the DNS records. However, changing that it won't work either because they do CNAME flattering, so they convert CNAME to A records.

    A workaround would be to check the IP where the domain is pointing, but this would only work if both the main domain and the tracking domain have CloudFlare activated. If one of them has it and the other not, I couldn't find a way to check if both are pointing to the same IP because the one with CloudFlare will have the IP hidden behind the reverse proxy, and there is nothing else saying about the CNAME that is going on behind the scenes.

    So I ended up disabling the validation for tracking domains, and leave the responsibility to make sure the CNAME works to the user.

    There are other issues to overcome, but I'll write another post with detailed instructions.

    @Jesús Carrera - Seems you have put some effort into this research, thank you for this.
    Should we maybe have a flag that says something like: Skip validation: yes/no ?

    Yes that'd be great. We would also need another setting, but I'll explain in the post

    That is great news! I have a few ideas/suggestions already, so I'll make sure I post them today or tomorrow. Do you have a list of the new features to be included so I don't repeat them?
