How to use cloudflare customer nameservers?

I have already created my custom name server. Where should I go to manage the domains hosted on the custom name server?

Have you just added the Cloudflare nameservers to your domain registrar?
If so, manage your DNS here…

Or, are you actually using Cloudflare custom (really vanity) nameservers as described here…?

If so, those are just special names for nameservers operated by Cloudlfare so you just manage your DNS in the same place.


First of all, thank you for your reply. However, the problem I am facing seems a bit complex, and I have illustrated it with the following three images. For example, the ns for has been successfully transferred, but Cloudflare seems unable to detect the ns, preventing me from managing the DNS for this domain.

To add to Cloudflare you would first need to set the 2 Cloudflare nameservers at the registrar (,

Once the domain is active, assuming it is in the same account as, you can then switch to use the account custom nameservers as detailed here and after that change to them at the registrar for

For the future, you can set the default nameservers for new zones as described here…
