Changing Cloudflare to Wix Namservers

I registered our URL through Cloudflare, but our site is hosted by Wix. I entered the Wix Nameservers in the Cloudflare DNS records, but the site still isn’t live. I assume it’s because it takes time for the changes to be recognized by the various DNS servers. However, the Wix instructions also mentioned deleting the Cloudflare name servers, which I did not see in the DNS records section. I’m not a network pro by any means, so hoping I’ve done this right. Is there anything I might have missed? Thanks for any guidance.

You can’t change the nameservers of a domain registered with Cloudflare. Adding NS records for the apex domain won’t work.

Instead do this…


Tried the pointing method… all I get is “Page Isn’t Directing Properly”.

What is the domain?

Thanks for your help!

Here’s the settings on Cloudflare if that helps…

You have “too many redirects”…

Set your SSL/TLS setting to “Full (strict)” here…

You may need those two DNS records you have entered to be set to “DNS only” so Wix can validate them.

I’ve changed both… hopefully that does the trick! I’ll update what happens. Again, many thanks for your invaluable help. My networking skills aren’t even at the novice level, unfortunately.

I am getting a new message now. Will this get resolved by Wix validating it?

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s).


The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

As you have set the DNS records to “DNS only”, requests are now going direct to Wix. You will need to check with them. They may provision the SSL certificate automatically at some point, or you may need to configure something at their end.

OK… thanks. Much appreciated!

The site has been updated with the DNS servers and is (finally) live!

Many, many thanks for your help and guidance.

I owe ya a beer… or two!

I am struggling to connect my cloudflare domain. Do you think you could give me step by step non technical instructions on how I can do this? I am totally stuck on trying to change the nameservers on cloudflare, which through my reading I found that I can’t actually do. I’m just trying to get my site live :sob::sob:

Hi – I was lucky enough to have someone respond who walked me through it, as I had no clue as to how to do it. I guess the best thing is to post the details of what you’re trying to do on the Cloudflare community pages and hopefully someone will guide you through it. They seem pretty helpful. Good luck!
