I am completely new… I have search for an answer, but I guess I may be asking the question wrong?
My host is a Cloudflare partner, and I have set up Cloudflare through my Cpanel etc.
But my host is saying I need to point my A records to Cloudflare.
What I.P should I use in my A record for Cloudflare?
I hope this makes sense, and would really appreciate your support!
Thanks in advance.
Cloudflare needs to know where to point your IP address.
It works better directly added to Cloudflare’s DNS record.
Under DNS Records > select the drop down.
There is usually a placeholder hint box next which type of record.
Select A tab > add you domainname.com (name) and your IP address (IPv4 address)
Click the green add button and creates something like:
A | yourdomainname.com | 1126.96.36.199
If you try to add the wrong type or not in correct sequence, you’ll get a placeholder warning. And try again.
I’m assuming you want CDN too; the grey cloud is for DNS only the orange cloud will include the CDN. See the graphic in the link I posted above.
Thank you very much for your detailed reply!
Really appreciate your support!
