How long will my site be down while I transfer nameservers?


I’d like to get started with cloudflares free plan for my website but I was wondering once I change the nameservers will my site be down for 48 hours?

I can’t really have it go down for to long, a few hours 6 or 7 is fine but not to many.

If someone who’s recently made the switch could please inform me a little more on the process I’d really appreciate it.

Thank you.

If your DNS here is a perfect copy of the DNS records at your current host, then there will be no downtime. I suggest you switch them to :grey: DNS-only to avoid any hiccups until it fully switches over.
