I have an existing site that I’ve built, and now i want to add Cloudflare to it to make it faster and more secure.
Now this is my issue, the domain is registered with Godaddy, and the server provider is Hostgator VPS (dedicated server).
Now when i click on add site button in Cloudflare, it reviews the DNS records on my site, and it shows me a list which you can see in the image attached (Cloudflare 1). I’ve seen few videos online and read few articles and they all say different stuff, my first question here is, do i have to delete all or any of these records before going to the next step?
Once moved on to the next step, Cloudflare asks me delete the name server i have in my domain provider Godaddy, specifically name servers: “ns1.millionaireaisle.com” & “ns2.millionaireaisle.com” (image Cloudflare 2). And when i go to my domain provider DNS page, i don’t see the name records they are referring to. I see different name servers: “ns67.domaincontrol.com” & “ns68.domaincontrol.com” (image Cloudflare 3).
So im confused on what shall i delete and what should i add.
My final concern is, if I delete the server name of my server provider (VPS Hostgator), wouldn’t i lose the service they are providing as it’s the only link that links the domain to the server?
Thanks and looking forward to hearing back from you.
