How to refresh DNS records after moving to a new host?

I moved my website to a new hosting server, but I noticed the DNS records in cloudflare still point to the old server.

Is there a way to remove/refresh all the cloudflare DNS records, and update them again like I did when I first added the website?

Or do I have to delete the old site that pointed to the old host, and add a new site that points to the new host?


If your DNS records are orange-clouded, you will not see the real origin IP if you are testing DNS - thus it may appear to you that your DNS records have not updated - this is not the case. Cloudflare will always return our IPs if you are orange clouded.

In the background, we contact whatever server is configured in your DNS dashboard:

Thus if the correct IP is in the dashboard, there is nothing to worry about.
