My client set up a paid account with Cloudflare yesterday. He is using SquareSpace and I have updated NS on SquareSpace to the new Cloudflare NS. I removed the NS that Cloudflare told me to get rid of at setup and updated with the new Cloudflare NS. It’s my first Square Space site with Cloudflare and i’m not 100% on what should be left in place. I kept (with Cloudflare NS above them) the following (which Cloudflare did not ask to remove):
partly because I wasn’t sure if I needed to remove them and partly in case the site went down while the Cloudflare NS propagated.
Do i need to remove the above (I’m assuming yes but i’d appreciate confirmation - and if it’s best to wait until account is no longer pending)? The Cloudflare account is still showing pending and most of my NS lookups are still showing the old NS (but occasionally the new). Aside from the above question, is this just now waiting and it should all work nicely with Cloudflare?
Thanks. So if in Cloudflare’s DNS panel there are 4 A records all with SquareSpace Ip’s for the domain and all proxied, do i need to remove these also or leave in place? And there is also a CNAME - should this also go?
Hi, thanks but the doc doesn’t answer my question about what to do with what is showing on the Cloudflare side and whether i need to change this. If you can confirm that i should leave the 4 A records (mydomain.com) and CNAME (www) record alone as is (ie pointing to SquareSpace) that would be great. Will this just get updated after propagation or does this stay pointing to SS.
