I created a free account March 18 and set up my website. I was at that time assigned two nameservers to use.
Almost a month later (April 14) I received an email from Cloudflare that read:
“In order to get running on Cloudflare, you need to update your nameserver (NS) records to point to Cloudflare. This critical final step only takes a few minutes.” It contained two different nameservers than those previously assigned.
Until this point, my site had been operating just fine under Cloudflare with the orginal nameservers. But sure enough, today my site stopped working, until I changed to the new nameservers.
My question is: Should I expect Cloudflare to change my nameservers periodically and be prepared for this? Or was this some one-off peculiarity?
If it’s going to change periodically, I can deal with that (I am currently on a free account after all), but I’d just like to know how it’s going to be. If I’m going to get further three day warnings to change nameservers, I want to be prepared.
