Hosting Company moving to new Server


#1

Hi there,

I have a Free Hosting plan with Cloudflare.

My hosting company is moving to a new server. This means a new Server Name and IP Address.

I know i need to update the DNS A Records with new IP address in Cloudflare.

Is there anything else i need to do? Do i need to change Server Name anywhere?

Thanks
Steve

Nope, updating the DNS records should be pretty much it.

Thank you for such a quick reply Sandro!

To change DNS A Record - do i simply over-type the IP address value in the DNS Records section?

Do i need to press save, or confirm it anywhere?

Cheers
Steve

In the desktop view not AFAIK.

Hi there. Attempting to change IP now and receiving following error…

“DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004): Invalid TTL. Must be between 120 and 2,147,483,647 seconds, or 1 for automatic (Code: 9021)”

Am i doing anything wrong?

Hi ya,

I created a new A Record with new IP which worked ok. Then deleted the old one.

All sorted now.
Thanks
Steve
