    "After searching and e-mailing with the supports of Cloudflare and DNS-O-MATIC for days (months)"

    You could have saved the efforts.  I would have told you within minutes...

    Btw, the following update URL on the FRITZ!Box is already sufficient:

    https://updates.dnsomatic.com/nic/update?myip=<ipaddr>

    The other parameters are obsolete.  And as domain name you specify one of the real hostnames you're updating through DNS-O-Matic, else your FRITZ!Box will raise error messages.

    Thanks for the info. I’ve updated my post with your FRITZ!Box settings.

    Everything worked flawlessly until DNS-O-MATIC moved from Cloudflare’s API1 to API4. Neither DNS-O-MATIC support nor Cloudflare support could help me what I have to change. Your post at https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/206142407-Using-DNS-O-Matic-dynamic-DNS-updates-with-CloudFlare- and another article at https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/206142407-Using-DNS-O-Matic-dynamic-DNS-updates-with-CloudFlare- gave me the hint how it works.

    I should mention that I have no relationship to these CloudFlare forum articles...
    My name is not John Roberts.

    changed my comment from "and the article at" to "and another article at". Now it has a whole new meaning ;-P

    It's over and over again funny, that in every community/forum are some semi VIPs which feeling the urge to be super correct. I appreciate your help and your knowledge, but in this way… Thanks and good bye.
