New here. Got a Godaddy notification to renew a .com at 19€. Seached for cheaper renew to keep 3 com I have but not using yet (for future project). So all I want is changing from Godaddy to Cloudflare.
(those 3 domains aren’t use or directed to a site -or just a blogspot/blogger- not even email)
So I read this: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/360019910671-Transferring-and-renewing-domains-with-Cloudflare-Registrar
But I don’t get “Only domains Active at Cloudflare via a Full setup (Cloudflare hosts the authoritative DNS) are eligible for Cloudflare Registrar. Domains on CNAME setups are ineligible.”
Not too familiarwith CNAME etc. I have experience of a .com I moved successfully between a dutch registrar and godaddy. So I think I can manage that.
What I wanna be sure of is that (seen the very low cost of Cloudflare renew) I don’t need to buy a cloudflare plan or something else ? For just 2-3 .com domains that I just own and no time to use.
So in short to recap:
I want to move .com websites from godaddy to cloudflare and pay lowest renew () for those domains, without the need to buy anything else (yet) from Cloudflare (yes i know i need to pay the transfer and a least 1 extra year)
() = might actually buy 5-10 years directly for peace of mind for a long duration and 1 invoice only.
Answers possible (I guess):
A: nope, you just pay the CF registrars, the move is easy. Nothing else (binding) to pay extra
B: yes you must have the xxxx CF bundle (pro/business/enterprise) to benefit from those cheap domain renew costs.
C: other answer,you tellme
