Use Cloudflare for *just* DNS?

I have a basic plan. I would like to just use Cloudflare for DNS resolution with no other services. In particular I would like to have my own SSL certificates hosted on my own servers with no intermediaries. I do not want to upload my certificates to Cloudflare (even if I could afford the plan that allows this.) Is this possible? Or should I look elsewhere for DNS resolution services?

Thanks for any help…

Hi @weinstock,

Any DNS records you set to :grey: will bypass Cloudflare services and be in “DNS Only” mode. You can do this for the entire zone by pausing Cloudflare on the overview tab.

Just adding this, in case your bank finds a few spare €$ in your account, Cloudflare does offer Keyless SSL, where you perform all the key handling operations on your own servers, or in a Cloud HSM under your direct control.
