How much time does it take after adding a website to Cloudflare?

I have added my website to Cloudflare in order to add a CDN to my site and improve the speed and performance of my website. How much time does it take to become active?

Hello darjamsheed52

Once your website is added to Cloudflare, it becomes active almost immediately. However, DNS propagation worldwide can take up to 24 hours. You will receive an email from Cloudflare when your domain is active. You can also check on the “Websites” page of your account for the status of your website. If you wish to confirm, you can use online tools like “” to check if your nameservers have been updated to those assigned by Cloudflare.
