We are planning on porting our live website from pantheon hosting to wpEngine hosting on Monday.
I have a vague understanding of cloudFlare’s role here caching and serving our site. I can imagine that cloudflare might help bridge that gap that normally happens in DNS propogation when you switch. If the DNS is always just pointing at clourdFlare, is there still that normal DNS propogation time if we redirect cloudflare to cache our new website on the new host compared to the old website on the old host?
Besides that, can someone offer suggestions of things I’m not considering? This is at the periphery of my role and I’d love any wisdom over things I’d likely run into.
Cheers in advance folks
