Changing domain name in CF?


I tried searching your forum without much luck

Heres short quick, simple run down:
I am needing to change my domain name .

In Cloudflare: Is it possible to change the domain name instead of making a new one? It would be easier to change it so I don’t lose all the settings, rules , etc.

Any idea?


Sorry, but that’s not possible.

I recommend you add the new one, then open two browser windows side by side (OLD on the left, NEW on the right), and go through all the settings.

It won’t help with the other settings, but there is an export and import function in the DNS that may be of interest to you.

Remember if you’re going to do the DNS Export/Import, that you should manually edit that exported BIND file to search/replace for the new domain name.

It’s a plain text file, so the changes should be pretty straightforward.
