Perhaps I’m in over my head here but I’m the techie guy among my friends and I am trying to transfer my domain registrar for 30 domains from GoDaddy to CloudFlare and the first step has me scratching my head. I host everything at hostgator- I’m fine keeping hostgator.
From these instructions to change my domain registrar it seems like I am changing hosting!
So if this is really the process to move the domain registration from GoDaddy to CloudFlare and keep the hosting at Hostgator, then can anyone confirm that yes, it means being absolutely down for all my sites for at least 24 hours? (I could actually do that but want to avoid it if possible). I wish that support page would explain why I am changing my DNS servers as the first step.
