Temporary change of DNS-servers?

I have my domain registered with Cloudflare registrar and want to add it as an addon Domain in cPanel, but in order to do that, I have to temporarily change the DNS-servers to the ones provided by the web hosting… Is this possible?
And if so, how could I do that?
I just need to change it for the moment. After it is added to the cPanel, I can safely switch back to the DNS-Servers of Cloudflare.

Not possible…yet. And there’s no official word on when that will become possible.

Won’t ever be allowed as per the TOS:

SERVICE USAGE.

  1. Nameservers . Registrant agrees to use Cloudflare’s nameservers. REGISTRANT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IT MAY NOT CHANGE THE NAMESERVERS ON THE REGISTRAR SERVICES, AND THAT IT MUST TRANSFER TO A THIRD PARTY REGISTRAR IF IT WISHES TO CHANGE NAMESERVERS.

But you have another and in fact much better option.

Add the site in Cpanel as an addon site. Then go to the zone editor or whatever they call the DNS settings in your version of Cpanel. Filter it to show only the dns settings for your addon site. Those settings are what you need to copy over to CloudFlare under DNS.

So for example the most important will be the A record, you want to copy this over to CloudFlare. If you want CloudFlare to cache this site then make sure the orange cloud is checked and lit orange. Do the same for obviously MX and everything else you want this Cpanel shared host to manage for your domain.

By the way this is a better option because your Cpanel shared host probably has poor DNS servers and by changing the NameServers your obviously making them now your DNS provider.

I’m sorry if I sound rude but did you actually read what I explained in my post?

I appreciate the help but really hate it when you suggest a solution that was mentioned and confirmed to not work.

Also as a side-note did I say that I want to only change it temporarely to add it to cPanel… I would’ve changed it back after that.
