Test DNS Settings


Is there a way to test my DNS settings in Cloudflare without changing the Nameservers on with the DNS registrar? I would like to make sure Cloudflare is setup correctly before I make the Nameserver change. How can I test this?


You should be able to find the two Cloudflare name servers assigned to you on the DNS page.

You use the ‘dig’ command: dig @NAME.ns.cloudflare.com example.com

Is there something in particular you’re concerned about? The DNS listings on your Cloudflare page should look pretty good, but compare them with your old host’s DNS settings page just to be sure.


OK, thanks. I agree, everything looks good, but I do not want my mail and website to become unavailable when I change the nameservers.

thanks for the quick response.
