Bluehost says i need to update the ip address?


Hey guys,

I just installed cloudflare by changing the bluehost nameservers to cloudflare’ nameservers. Now bluehost tells me this:

“Currently the domain is pointing to Cloudflare. Now you need to contact them to update the IP address internally to . Then only the domain will access the contents from our server.”

Do i need to do this? I didn’t see anything about this when i tried to install cloudflare. And if i need to do so, how do i do this?

Thanks guys.

Yes, if that the servers IP keep it. Also, review the other records from BlueHost and make sure to add them to Cloudflare.
