    Hello,

    i was running some analysis tool on my site. and i discovered some of my top pages was a blog attached to my website, let me explain more:

    my domain is https://www.3alamtaney.com

    all pages, posts and everything come under this domain, there is no subdomains or anything
    while the tool discovered so many links lied under blog.3alamtaney.com which i never created or used, when i click this link it takes me to a

    Centmin Mod Nginx Test Page

    i really don't understand what is this and how can i isable this action cause for sure it hurts my SEO

    Nginx 1.15.x
    MariaDB 5.5/10.x
    yeah sounds like you misconfigured your cloudflare dns with other hostname or wildcard but they're redirecting to non-orange cloud protected cloudflare server origin IPs

    check your cloudflare dns dashboard configuration as if you have valid dns subdomain entries, they will point to your centmin mod nginx server and if the server doesn't have valid nginx vhost configs, then you get redirected o default Centmin Mod Nginx Test page

    yup - wilcard tells dns that any *.domain.com subdomain will resolve to the IP you assign to it
