A verification email will be received to your email ID which you have entered initially.
Just click on that mail and verify it.

Scroll down and click on Continue.
Now, Login to your Domain Control Panel (eg: GoDaddy, whois etc…)
Click on DNS
Sometimes, when you login, the control panel will be as follows.
In that case, choose the domain name which you want to point.
Click on 3 dots and choose Manage DNS.
Click on Change name servers.
Select I will use my own name server.
Now, Go to Cloud flare and Copy the ‘name server 1’ and ‘name server 2’ from “Replace with cloud flare name servers”.

(In the above screen shots those two name servers are copied from cloud flare)

Select type as CNAME.
Enter Name as desired subdomain name (eg : www, online, etraining, elearning etc…)
Insert Ipv4 address/ target as the trial account domain (eg : demo.enfinlabs.com, test.ofabee.com)
Leave TTL as it is.
Click on Save
