Re-point my domain


#1

Hoping someone can help a newbie.

My hosting provider has stated that in order for my SSL cert to be picked up I need to re-point my domain from my cloudflare control panel to the new cloud IP address.

I have no idea how to do this. Could someone explain clearly with screenshots if possible exactly how I do this?

Regards

Rob

You need to use Cloudflare’s DNS to use Cloudflare services.

What do mean by “Picked Up”? Has it already been issued?

When you go through Cloudflare, your visitors use the Cloudflare-issued SSL certificate since they’re hitting the Cloudflare Proxy server for your domain.

The SSL certificate on your server is used when Cloudflare’s proxy server connects to your server to pull content.
