I have a website,
domain.com, with a server hostname of
domain.com website is used as a website, as is a few seperate sites like
The other websites are using cloudflare to mask the server’s IP address and make use of Cloudflare’s other benefits.
What I would like to do, is make the
domain.com website also protected by cloudflare. If it was a seperate site, that’s easy, but my concern with setting up cloudflare or a similar service would be how it works with the server.
Will my server hostname, AutoSSL, or any of the other features that use the
https://domain.com) or the
https://server.domain.com) hostname break because I would use cloudflare on the ‘root’ website? When setting up custom nameservers for the first time on
domain.com, I have to provide certain information to my domain registrar, but wouldn’t these be erased by changing my
domain.com nameserves to cloudflare ones, stopping me from using my custom nameservers on any future domains I add to WHM where I don’t want to use cloudflare? Are there any other risks for applying this change to my main server’s domain?
Thank you for any help.
