Changing hosting provider

I want the DNS about my Wordpress blog to point to my new Wordpress hosting server (ns1, ns2, ns3) rather than my previous one.

Where can I make that change?

May I ask if you’re using Cloudflare nameservers for your domain name already, or not? :thinking:

If yes, then you’d just have to update the A type of DNS records from the DNS tab of Cloudflare dashboard for your domain name and point them to the new web hosting/server IP.

May I also ask if the domain name is registered by Cloudflare Registrar or some other?

My blog is registered by Network Solution since 2016. And it is secured by Cloudflare since May 2018.

Two years later (during January 2020), I was able to keep the DNS pointing to Cloudflare at Network Solutions while my blog moved from BlueHost to SiteGround.

Now I’m moving my blog from SiteGround to DreamHost. But I can’t find a way to change the DNS settings at Cloudflare from :
Preformatted textns1.siteground.netPreformatted text
to :
Preformatted textns1.dreamhost.comPreformatted text

At Cloudflare, I’ve tried to change DNS setting from these IPv4 :
Preformatted text34.70.233.26Preformatted text
to :
Preformatted text162.159.26.14Preformatted text
and my blog just crashed.

So temporarily, I’ve changed the DNS settings at Network Solutions to point directly to DreamHost.

What is the best solution ?
