Primary Nameservers

I just transferred my domain to Cloudflare and am wondering were do I go through update my Primary Nameservers As I’m moving servers in the next week ?


Cloudflare only offers domain registration services to its customers. As such, you can’t change the nameservers of a Cloudflare Registrar domain. This was clearly disclosed to you during the domain transfer process.

Luckily, this is not a problem at all: all you have to do is add/edit your DNS records to point your domain to your new server – as millions of site owners do.

Here’s another way to look at this:

I’m hoping you didn’t transfer your domain to Cloudflare just to save a few cents on the domain price. More likely you used/want to use Cloudflare’s security and CDN services to secure and speed up your site… which requires you to use Cloudflare’s nameservers.

So changing your nameservers away from Cloudflare, even if it was possible, would defeat the purpose.
