What records to add


Please forgive my ignorance.

  1. What records should I add to my DNS options in Cloudflare for my site to be routed through Cloudflare?
  2. What records should I add for my site to operate smoothly ie, web browsing and emails?

At a minimum you’ll need an A record pointing to your site. Check out the #Tutorials on this site, they’ll guide you through very easily, start here, Adding DNS Records.

I suspect some dns records were created when you added your site, yes?


Long back yes. I tried deleting my account so the records can be imported at the initial configuration but it simply uses the previous records. I was hoping if i delete my account then add my sites again, it would help.

I just want to know which records makes it possible for web browsing, emailing, ftp etc.

The best way to update your DNS records is to have them match all the records at your host’s DNS.
Email-related records should be set to :grey: DNS-Only.
