How to correctly connect domain to hosting


My steps:

  1. I bought a domain.
  2. I created a Cloudflare account and wired my domain to it via changing NS records in the domain to Cloudflare’s NS records.
  3. I bought hosting.

What I need to do next for connecting My domaine to hosting? How I understood I need make new records in a Cloudflare’s DNS section, but which one? I need to add NS records(ex. from my hosting to Cloudflare or I should add A records(IP) from my hosting?

May I ask if you have followed below tutorial?:

Your DNS records at Cloudflare dashboard, when you add a domain, you can manage the DNS records.

Usually, when adding a domain/website to your Cloudflare account, in the process the Cloudflare scans the current DNS records and add them automatically.

If that is not the case, then you would either need to lookup at your hosting provider cPanel or some other interface what records do you have there (A, MX, CNAME; TXT …) and have add or import the same to the Cloudflare DNS tab/settings page.

Exactly. You would need to have like A www and A with “content value” of your hosting provider IPv4 address and :orange: cloud.
