Cloudflare Proxy Settings


We have a list of about 40 items in our DNS settings in Cloudflare. Many of them are DNS only. How do I know which I can change to be proxied please?



Anything that isn’t for HTTP/HTTPS must not be proxied (mail records, SSH, VPN, etc).

Whether web records can be proxied depends on who they are pointing to. If they point to a server or VPS of your own, likely they can be proxied. If your web host uses Cloudflare, or has particular requirements (such as validating your records are set correctly, automatic SSL certificate generation, etc) then likely they can’t be proxied without things breaking now or later.

You’d need to give details to be any more specific.


That is awesome. Thank you so much!
