How to Change Cloudflare Nameservers

Tags: Cloud Servers,  Nameservers,  DNS 

To properly set up Cloudflare, you'll need to integrate it with two locations: your cPanel and Nameserver.  When you begin your service with Cloudflare, they provide you with Nameserver entries to change with your domain registrar.  These will need to match for the service to function.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to change your Nameserver for Cloudflare:

  • Log in to your domain registrar
  • Find the domain you wish to attach Cloudflare to
  • Look for the Nameserver tab or location in the domain to manage your DNS records
  • Change the Nameserver entries to match those Cloudflare provided

You can check through to see that your nameservers entries match the ones Cloudflare provided.
