I signed up for CloudFlare on Friday, 7/28. I went through to the DNS list, then got to the page where I have to copy and paste the nameservers they CloudFlare wants us to use.
I went to Name. com, where I manage my domain. I copy and pasted the new nameservers into the fields at name. com.
However, I never pressed apply changes, so nothing changed on name. com’s server. Furthermore, I went to CloudFlare and pressed a button that confirmed I changed nameservers. At this point I realize I did not satisfy what CloudFlare was asking me to do.
So…I went back to name. com, then applied changes. I returned to CloudFlare and went to apply changes with them and CloudFlare said I could only do this once per hour.
I went back to it for the first time today and it said that I was good to go, as if the whole thing worked already.
I checked my name. com nameservers and they were still the originals before I knew anything about CloudFlare. So then I went to name. com and changed the name servers to what CloudFlare said to change it to. On Name. com I pressed accept changes.
Now, I dont know where to confirm a change with CloudFlare. How do I refresh and make sure I am good to go. Is there a status or diagnostic I can do to make sure I am good to go? Or do I need to just wait 24 hours? Thanks in advance to anyone who can break this down for me or point me in an already archived answer!
