Adding Cloudflare CDN via raw DNS records

Hi, I’m having issues adding Cloudflare to my server. I have a host that is not on the list of normally supported hosts, but I have no idea how to add the necessary DNS records to my site.

Hi @rogueyoshi,

I take it you have added the domain to your Cloudflare account, but don’t have any DNS records? Your host should be able to provide a list of the necessary DNS records for you to add in Cloudflare, alternatively you may be able to export them as a BIND file.

So I’m supposed to take my my DNS settings on the server and export to Cloudflare? Before or after changing nameservers locally?

You should copy the DNS records over to Cloudflare before you change the nameservers to avoid any downtime.
