Bluehost domain to cloudflare

Hi, i just got beddoz.com from bluehost, and i’m trying to connect it with Cloudflare. I changed the dns nameservers and added the host records, but when i try to access to my website, it won’t load. Can someone explain me how to connect my domain step by step, and then put it into my xampp server? Thank you.

Hey, the IP address you put in the DNS is a private IP space address. 192.168.0.15 won’t resolve because it can only be accessed on the same network as the machine.

On the xampp server, you should open a command prompt and enter

nslookup -type=txt whoami.Cloudflare.com ns1.Cloudflare.com
# or on Linux:
dig +short TXT whoami.Cloudflare.com @ns1.Cloudflare.com

This will give you the Public IP address your server has. Create some “A” DNS records for your root zone “@” and “www” pointing to this IP address.
