As a part of transitioning to Cloudflare, I’ve been told that the 3 NS nameserver records in our current DNS configuration must be transferred to CF (along with all the A records etc.) I have successfully created a NS record but am wondering - on the DNS tab below the table of records is the following text:
“Custom nameservers allow you to create your own, unique nameservers in place of your assigned Cloudflare nameservers. To switch to using custom nameservers, first create them here, then add them as glue records at your registrar.”.
and to its right is a button for upgrading to the business plan.
I’m guessing that what is meant is that if we want to replace the CF nameservers that have been assigned to us with some other nameservers then we must have a Business Plan account but that with our Pro plan I can go ahead and create NS records.
Not being a DNS person, I’m also curious to know why a DNS server has nameserver records that point somewhere else? Why would one nameserver point to another nameserver?
Thanks for any help.
