or without the https if you’re not SSL enabled?

That would normally be a DNS record for your domain that is NOT directed through Cloudflare. (that is, no oragne cloud on the DNS panel.) You’re going to have to use a subdomain name that is NOT Cloudflare enabled – this is usually direct, or ftp, or admin – depends on what you have set up on Cloudflare. The 10000 and 20000 ports aren’t going to be able to connect to your Cloudflare servver.
