Does Cloudflare have an IP?

I am under the assumption that I need to update the A-Record in GoDaddy to point to the Cloudflare firewall via IP address 198.12.128.2. Is this the correct IP for Cloudflare? Please help our site; www.planksip.org is down.

BTW, we are using a Virtual Server on GoDaddy with Cloudflare as the proxy.

Yes, cloudflare has IP’s and the reason your site is down is because you are using one of those IP’S here’s a list of Cloudflare IP’S.

    So try to change the IP, it may fix the problem

I am in a chat with GoDaddy and they are suggesting that I add four of the above IP addresses. Do you recommend doing this as well?

I don’t know what godaddy has available in its dash; however, you want to use the nameservers (NS) that Cloudflare has assigned to you - not IP addresses. There are two of them.

To add where?

To add them as A-Records in the GoDaddy control panel to essentially point at the Cloudflare firewall.

planksip.org

;QUESTION
planksip.org. IN NS
;ANSWER
planksip.org. 3599 IN NS ns02.domaincontrol.com.
planksip.org. 3599 IN NS ns01.domaincontrol.com.

As far as I have checked the domain is obviously not yet using Cloudflare nameservers and Cloudflare services.

If you want to use Cloudflare for your domain you would need to:

  1. Create an Cloudflare account
  2. Add your domain to your Cloudflare account
  3. Change the nameservers for your domain at your domain registar (GoDaddy)

Here is a great step-by-step instructions in case if needed:

Does anyone have any experience with moving my domain registrar from GoDaddy to Cloudflare? My assumption here is that I don’t have to deal with GoDaddy if I make the changes to the registrar.

I believe this article could help:

Thank you, I think this is a good strategy. I just have to make sure that my MX records for email are set up properly.

If you add a cloudflare IP as a DNS record, it may cause problems. What are they suggesting actually?
