Hi Chris,

Thanks for this. Actually for #5 you can do this at root level without breaking DNS specification dates from 1987. Cloudflare introduced CNAME Flattening feature, very useful if you’ve looking for a way to make your root domain work on a hosted service like AWS and Heroku.

Is that what they call a "virtual" CNAME, or something else? I think I read about that, but thought it was a different option (on Cloudflare) than just a normal CNAME? (could be wrong though - I haven't setup Cloudflare before)
