Do I even need Cloudflare?

#1

Hi I have Cloudflare activated across my server and across all domains, this was a module extension shipped with Plesk. I am aware Cloudflare takes over the WWW record only.

However all of my WWW records points to my blank records (where the site files are located). My question is, are my sites actually being protected? Or is this a pointless exercise?

Cheers in advance!

If you’re using the Plesk extension that requires your sites to respond as ‘www’, but you’ve configured your sites as naked domains, then that setup conflicts with itself.

You can either:

  1. Configure your sites to work as ‘www’
  2. Not use the Plesk extension and configure your sites directly at Cloudflare where you can use naked domains.
