I took the plunge and moved some domain names to Cloudflare (great price) but now I’m a bit worried by the drop in functionality (unless I’m missing something).
When you add a new site to Cloudflare, it scans your DNS records and re-builds in Cloudflare DNS records to match your host. This is important if you have something more than an A record and a couple of MX records.
As far as I can tell there is only one way to re-initiate that scan later: point to the original nameservers, delete the domain name from Cloudflare and then rescan and re-add. That works.
Once you’ve moved a domain to the Cloudflare registrar, however, you can’t do this.
If you want to move to a new host, for example, that would entail manually editing your DNS records on Cloudflare and I’m reaching the limits of what I’m comfortable doing.
It seems to me the ability to do that initial setup scan is very important once you’ve moved a domain name to Cloudflare!
Does this make sense?
