I don’t understand. If my hosting is with Hostgator, wouldn’t redirecting my DNS from hostgator to cloudflare make me lose my actual hosting? As far as I read I do not get free hosting from cloudflare.
I had my doubts regarding the above but changed my DNS to cloudflare anyways, and my 2 website totally were down, with no access to my wordpress admin panel.
I read another topic regarding this issue, but the answers were not clear to me and too technical instead of a guided solution.
