How to "point" Cloudfare DNS to my external hosting site?

I just successfully changed my domain’s registration to registrar Cloudflare from registrar IONOS.com (formerly d.b.a. 1and1.com). I also changed hosting of my website from IONOS.com to Mochahost.com.

In doing so, I had to change the nameservers pointing to IONOS.com’s servers hosting my site to Cloudfare’s nameservers (“justin” and “tara”).

Where in Cloudfare (DNS records setting or elsewhere) do I “point” browsers looking for my site to the nameservers required by that site (ns3015.mochahost.com and ns4015.mochahost.com) and/or their IP addresses (50.31.138.95 and 204.93.165.70, respectively)?

Hi @bgweniger,

You don’t add the nameservers at Cloudflare, but what you do need to do is make sure that all the DNS records match those at your host. Likely an A record with an IP address.
