we have used the Cloudflare plugin and it states we have integrated properly as no detail says otherwise, but on the Cloudflare account settings, it says we need to update the nameservers…so couple questions, are we integrated with Cloudflare and 2nd question, how do we integrate using the nameserver settings without losing our hosting provider which hosts our site?
the site is livecofriendly dot com and it loads on our side, but other users have stated it doesn’t load and others say it isn’t mobile friendly,but after we do testing, it loads properly after a minutes…please help
That domain is currently using Bluehost’s nameservers so is not on your Cloudflare setup.
You just need to make sure all the correct DNS settings are copied over from Bluehost to Cloudflare before you switch.
These are issues you should address before you make the change to Cloudflare’s nameservers. Currently your site is not using Cloudflare and issues like this should be easier to diagnose without the proxy. Once the domain is working as expected then change the nameservers to get the Cloudflare benefits.
the livecofriendly site can’t connected to Cloudflare because my registrer is different from my hosting provider…i changed the dns on the registrar to reflect Cloudflare and then thought about it, if it is connected to Cloudflare, though the domain is connected is connected to Cloudflare, the website’s content is not, (it is on the hosting provider)
Plenty of people use different registrars and hosting and still use Cloudflare. While it may seem that way, nameservers do not determine where a site it hosted, DNS does.
Hosts often make it seamless and handle DNS automatically so it seems like the nameservers mean that’s the host. You can point the nameservers to anywhere as long as the nameservers respond with the right records to point to your host.
Just think of it as an extra step, Registrar → Cloudflare → Host.
Registrar → Cloudflare = Nameservers
Cloudflare → Host = DNS records
i see what you mean, however, how would I be able to manage my site if its content management system is based on the hosting provider, would it actually render/load/managable?
domain name → Cloudflare
but what about when I need to manage the site and it’s basic operational mode was from the hosting provider (it would load through Cloudflare?) (sorry if technical terms aren’t proper)
can you see about Cloudflare simply buying out a hosting provider? there are hundreds of sale on the , mergerscorp dotcom /property-type/hosting-businesses/ so then we can host our sites on Cloudflare and they can cross connect their backend, it makes it easier as well as it seems Cloudflare has become a pivotal company in the world of the internet.
