I have a website that is hosted on Host Gator (and the name servers for the domain is already pointing to Cloudflare). I want to move the hosting to Amazon Lightsail and have already made a copy of the site from Host Gator to Amazon. I have an IP address associated with the copied site.
I’m not sure what I need to do in order for the domain to point to that IP – and still use Cloud Flare. Normally, the name server is pointing to the host, then I just update with Cloudflare’s name servers. What do I do when the domain is already using Cloudflare?
I am a bit confused here. You said the domain already points to cloudflare. Therefore, all you need to do is update cloudflare to point to the new hosting provider. Currently the chain is Domain.com -> Cloudflare -> HostGator. And you will need to sign in to CloudFlare to change it to Domain.com -> Cloudflare -> Amazon, click edit next to the A name records for your root domain and www., and change them to the IP address on LightSail. As long as you are using CF and have SSL enabled, your SSL will work.
