Name servers for transferred domain

When I transfer a domain to Cloudflare (as registrar), do I need to use only Cloudflare’s name servers or can I use other name servers (such as AWS) to keep the DNS records?

You must use Cloudflare nameservers, though you can still delegate subdomains to other nameservers.

Just curious… How’s it better than hosting the DNS elsewhere?

Apart from the faster and more resilient DNS, Cloudflare also provides a CDN (which speeds up your site) and a WAF (which secures your site)… among other awesome features.

Whether to use Cloudflare’s services or not is a decision only you can make.

Just note that Cloudflare Registrar is not your traditional registrar: domains are priced at cost and only offered to Cloudflare’s customers. That’s why it is REQUIRED to use Cloudflare’s nameservers – you can’t change that at all.
