Update DNS Server

Hello,

I recently changed my hosting provider and transfered my domain name to this new hosting provider.

The transfert is completed and the migration is finished.

Now I need to update cloudflare settings to point at the new DNS.

Could you please tell how am I going to do that ?

The cloudflare name servers are transfered to the name servers at my new hosting provider and my new domain provider but cloudflare still points to the old one.

Could you please tell me how do I change that ?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Dimitra Coutsoyannis

I’m not clear on what you changed. If you want to use your new hosting provider’s name servers, you need to set this at your domain registrar.

What’s the domain?

Hi sdayman,

The domain name is solofood.fr and it’s currently registered at ovh at cloudflare. I changed the hosting provider to planethoster and I have a new IP for my site but I do not know how to update the cloudflare settings. Currently the name servers in the new hosting provider are those of cloudflare.

In the old settings I had put the IP of cloudflare into the DNS of my old hosting provider and the name servers of cloudflare.

I want to do the same thing with the new hosting provider but I don’t know how?

Thank you.

You would have to update your DNS records here:

Hello,

I know all this the only thing I do not know are the values for the CNAME, AAAA, MX, SRV, TXT entries.

Do you know where I can get them? Or is it possible to be updated automatically after entering the IP ?

Thank you in advance.

Hello again,

Should I delete all current values that point to the old hosting provider and recreate new ones for the following records using the @ symbol ?

A Record
AAAA Record
CNAME Record
MX Record
TXT Record
I al really sorry to ask all these basic questions but I know nothing about DNS and when I installed cloudflare for my previous hosting provider it was automatic and pretty straightforward, now it’s not I have to do all that manually.

Thank you in advance.

That’s usually how it goes. “@” is just shorthand for the actual domain, so it’ll work, then automatically expand to show your domain name.

No problem at all.

This will be a good learning experience. Knowledge is power.
