We have a domain registered with Siteground, which makes use of CloudFlare through their own system. As such, it appears listed in my Cloudflare account as “CloudFlare Plan WAF”.
Since migrating our site to their new SiteTools software, the DNS has been interfered with on a few occasions by their system and they’ve said that this is unavoidable, as we have subdomains hosted externally. They’ve suggested that we move the DNS to an external CloudFlare account as this is the only way that we can ensure that it won’t happen again.
I’m not able to add the domain to CloudFlare as it “already exists” (albeit in this “CloudFlare Plan WAF” format). I’m not clear whether I can safely remove this CloudFlare Plan WAF domain from CloudFlare and re-add it as a “normal” domain without it interfering the DNS on siteground?
Obviously I don’t actually want my site to go down so the DNS should remain as-is until I’ve switched over the nameservers so, ideally, I can just remove it from the CF dashboard, then replace it with a fresh DNS zone and change the nameservers accordingly.
Thanks for any advice.
