Hello. I am developing a new website for a client, which I am hosting on webflow.
The client purchased the domain themselves through 123reg. They then paid an agency to create them a basic website and setup their email. This agency created a website and setup their emails and hosted them on cloudflare. The 123reg default DNS records have been updated by them to point to cloudflare. so any emails are actually hosted on cloudflare. They did this by updating the name servers within 123reg.
I cannot connect the 123reg domain to my webflow hosted website, because the default nameservers have been overridden with cloudflare ones. As soon as you do that it says ‘If you change the nameservers for your domain name all DNS administration will need to completed via the nameserver provider.’ Adding the arecords and cname records hasn’t worked because of this.
Is it possible in this instance, to add the necessary a records and cname records within cloudflare? So the 123reg domain points to >> cloudflare, and cloudflare points to >> webflow?
Or, do I need to reset the nameservers to 123reg defaults, and then connect up the cloudflare email in a different way? Can the nameservers remain as 123reg ones, and then MX records be added which point to cloudflare emails?
The cloudflare account isnt in my name, so I cannot look into this and try it myself and the people I am contacting at the agency don’t seem to know the answer. If this is possible I can then try and direct them how to make the changes within their cloudflare control panel.
(You may have noticed but this kind of back-end server side stuff isn’t my strength, any help would be really appreciated)
