How do I temporarily disable Cloudflare?


How do I temporarily pause Cloudflare? This solution does unfortunately not work (as I do not have advances settings on my Overview page:

You can temporarily pause Cloudflare by:

  1. Going to the Overview tab in the Cloudflare dashboard.
  2. At the bottom right of this page there is a link under Advanced Actions .
  3. Click Pause Cloudflare on Site

All the best,

If you don’t have that in the lower right corner of your site, you can do the same thing by setting all your DNS entries to :grey: instead of :orange:.

Thank you. I appreciate your help. However, changes in DNS settings may take up to 24 hours to go through and is therefore not really a suitable option. I would prefer (as a paid user) to have the same interface as everyone else on the Overview page. Here’s what I see:

Pausing would take the same time. There is no difference between pausing and unproxying. The change on Cloudflare would actually be pretty instantaneous, a delay would be because of third party resolvers.

Whats the reason to pause it in the first place?

Understandably, but only support will be able to help you here →
