What happens to existing redirects when setting up Cloudflare on a domain?

Hi, I am looking at setting up Cloudflare on my domain, let’s call it hellowworld.com, it currently has multiple redirect domains that all land at helloworld.com. When setting up cloudflare on helloworld.com, do I need to do anything with the redirects or will they continue to work as normal? Also, if someone browses our site using one of the redirects, does the redirect domain also receive the security that cloudflare is providing to helloworld.com?


That really depends on where your redirects occur.

If the redirect is performed by your origin server, you will have some benefits, but you would still be vulnerable to most attacks.

If the redirect is performed by your domain registrar, then yes, you will receive the full Cloudflare benefits for your domain.
