Hi every one here,
I am newbie here and i try to understand the right way to drive my websites with Cloudflare in the context that is mine.
I need informations to better understand the field of possibility.
I manage my websites with a Plesk interface, until today I do not manage DNS of these websites via Plesk. I preferred to keep this control into my Registrar interface for comfort reasons.
Today i want to use CloudFlare CDN to increase my Pagespeed loading. So i installed Servershield By CloudFlare into my Plesk.
According to my discussions with the Plesk support team, as i don’t manage DNS into Plesk, it seem’s that CloudFlare doesn’t work at this moment. I already need confirmation on this point.
In any case, what is certain is that CloudFlare is not active for subdomains, as it’s displayed in Servershield By CloudFlare panel,.
So i tried an another way to make CloudFlare work. I directly recorded in my registrar interface the DNS Cloudflare Nameservers to one of my domaine website. Then by reading here and there recommended essential steps that I realized that it was still a different way of managing Cloudflare than with Servershield By Cloud Flare into Plesk. Tell me if I’m wrong.
I would like to avoid having to do all the recommended manipulations in the essential steps (IP list, Review your Performance settings …) and I was thinking that certainly with ServerShield by CloudFlare in Plesk all this tasks will be automatically done because it would be expected by this Plesk extension. Isn’t it ?
So finaly, may be it’s worth it that I assign the DNS management of my websites to Plesk to enjoy a certain comfort by using Servershield By CloudFlare, knowing that I will have about fifteen sites to integrate into Cloudflare… :-/
I hope I have been clear in my explanation, I hope someone can help me and correct me if my deductions are bad.
