DNS Settings


I have used cloudflare through a CNAME setup, have now switched to the Cloudflare name servers.

When I open my cloudflare account and look under DNS, it says:

A few more steps are required to complete your setup.

Some of your DNS only records are exposing IPs that are proxied through Cloudflare. Make sure to proxy all A, AAAA, and CNAME records pointing to proxied records to avoid exposing your origin IP.

Which means they want me to proxied number: 2-3-4-5-6-9-10-11-12-13-15.

Can I do this without any problems or only some of them or is all fine?

What you guys recommend me to do, I ask because Iā€™m afraid of doing something wrong, so it all breaks down.

Below are my DNS records, as they are now.

  1. A 2018 Auto Proxied Edit

  2. A autoconfig Auto DNS only Edit

  3. A autodiscover Auto DNS only Edit

  4. A cpcalendars Auto DNS only Edit

  5. A cpcontacts Auto DNS only Edit

  6. A ftp Auto DNS only Edit

  7. A local-9host Auto DNS only - local IP Edit

  8. A my-domain.com Auto Proxied Edit

  9. A webdisk Auto DNS only Edit

  10. A whm Auto DNS only Edit

  11. CNAME cpanel my-domain.com Auto DNS only Edit

  12. CNAME mail my-domain.com Auto DNS only Edit

  13. CNAME webmail my-domain.com Auto DNS only Edit

  14. CNAME www my-domain.com Auto Proxied Edit

  15. MX my-domain.com my-domain.com Auto DNS only Edit

#6 should be :grey:
#12 should be replaced by an ā€œAā€ record with the IP address just like record #1, but set to DNS-Only.
#15 should be: MX example.com mail.example.com
