APO without setting nameservers

I would like to use Wordpress APO new service to a website client. But, I can’t change clients’ nameservers to cloudflare. Is there a way to still use the APO service ? Thanks

CloudFlare Services can just be used by routing traffic through CloudFlare. This is getting done with changing NameServers to the one CloudFlare provides to you.

I think in enterprise plan there should be an option to use it without.

I’ve found a way to connect my website to cloudflare through cPanel option “Cloudflare” . The connection was made automatically with a CNAME record.
Then I installed Cloudflare wordpress plugin. I purchased APO and activated.
APO says it’s ON but I don’t see any kind of Cloudflare cache on the Headers Response.

Without using a Cloudflare name server, your host needs to be a Cloudflare Partner. That’s the only way to get the cPanel option to work.

Do you see any Cloudflare headers?

Yes, my host is a Cloudflare Partner and I’ve set using the CNAME option.
I don’t see any Cloudflare headers.

If you don’t see any Cloudflare headers, then your site is not proxied by Cloudflare. If you post the domain name, we can take a closer look.

I don’t know how that site could be using Cloudflare. It’s using Amazon (Route 53?) name servers. Regardless, it’s not being proxied by Cloudflare.

As I said, the website is hosted on a Cloudflare Partner so I used the Cloudflare option on the Cpanel which automatically added Cloudflare. When I go to my Cloudflare account and pick this domain I see this message

" Great news! Cloudflare is now protecting your site. Data about your site’s usage will be here once available."

So the information provided by Cloudflare is not correct. Correct ?

You’ll have to check with them what’s going on. They should be able to explain why your site isn’t proxied by Cloudflare.

Yes. I’ve created a ticket. Thanks for your time and help
