    "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.

    This worked great for me up until the point I added another host. Then dynamic AND the new host would get updated. I worked around this by just creating a CNAME record that pointed at another one of my dynamic hostnames (asuscomm.com).

    Were you able to connect dnsomatic to Cloudflare using an API Token (labelled A) generated for just that domain or did you use the Cloudflare global API key (labelled B)


    Because the Cloudflare global API key has the same access as a password has to an account

    You can do this more easily, use @ as the hostname in both cloudflare and dns-o-matic
