How to get my website running?

I am sorry in advance at how newbish this question is, but I have spent hours googling to try and get an answer but I’m running into dead ends so would appreciate any guidance. Here’s where I’m at:

  1. I have files for an already designed website ready.

  2. I bought a domain off Namecheap.

  3. I hosted the domain on the free servers at Cloudflare.

Now, how do I get the website design running on the domain? My Googling led to to FTPs, but that didn’t work, and then further Googling told me that Cloudflare does not do FTPs? Or something like that? Any help would be much appreciated!

Cloudflare is no host, unless you are using the Pages product, which you probably won’t.

You will first need to find a host for your site, then properly configure your domain for that host, and once your site loads fine on HTTPS, you can add Cloudflare.

Oh, okay… that explains SO MUCH

Most welcome :slight_smile:

Should you still be interested in Pages, then Cloudflare Pages documentation · Cloudflare Pages docs will have more, however keep in mind it is a highly specialised product and does not necessarily cater to the average, standard hosting needs.
