Noob question: downtime during DNS switch?

Hey guys,

Quick question, is there a downtime after I switch DNS in my domain name panel? If there is, what is the best time to do a switch or what do you guys usually do it vs your time zone?

Thanks!

If you update IP addresses in the DNS panel here, it’s an instant switch, as Cloudflare will immediately begin pulling content from the new IP address.

Thanks for the reply!

I see… In other words, as soon as I use the wizard to fetch the DNS zones, Cloudflare will start caching the site. And since, all that needs to be done after is the DNS to “turn over”, it seems to be seamlessly.

Is that right to assume?

The DNS wizard is an initial setup. Cloudflare doesn’t serve DNS until you change the name server over at your domain registrar.
