After changing the A record, you should see the changes quickly. What’s the domain?

@styleadvicehomeinter running a WHOIS on your Wordpress site is showing you are using Cloudflare DNS servers, but there’s no security certificate set up as of right now:

Name Server: ulla.ns.cloudflare.com

Your domain is not configured for Cloudflare, you havent set the necessary nameservers.

Wait a bit. It can take up to 48 hours until the nameserver change has been propagated. I did a whois and:

Name Server: dns1.registrar-servers.com 
Name Server: dns2.registrar-servers.com

And with greetings to your provider: Cloudflare is not a hosting company :wink:

What is not working? You are not using Cloudflare anymore, so that should be a question for your host.

@MarkMeyer is correct. An ~hour ago when I ran a WHOIS (see above comment) it appeared as if you had Cloudflare DNS configured properly. Now I’m seeing the same thing as Mr. Meyer, so whatever you have done – change it back!

Name Server: dns1.registrar-servers.com 
Name Server: dns2.registrar-servers.com

Blue host and Name Cheap told me to wait til the changes show up. So I guess ill check it in the morning to see if my site shows up when i google it. Name cheap says my domain is pointed to their basic dns server.

You said you are not going to use Cloudflare any more. That is right, is it not?

I pointed the domain to name cheap basic dns servers and we deleted some records on the name cheap end. I didn’t do anything else on Cloudflare though.

Again, there is nothing you need to do at this point.

No not at the moment, I just want my website to be working for now. Maybe in a few weeks I’ll try Cloudflare again. So i’m hoping by tomorrow my domain will be pointed in the right direction.

So, again, there is nothing you need to do. The domain properly points to your registrar and you just need to make sure the entries there are correct.

From a Cloudflare perspective you are set.
