Well, I’ve searched so many times but can’t find related posts, and I’m not sure if the title is well-suitable for my question.
Here’s the situation:
- I’ve created a site in Cloudflare and change the site domain’s authoritative DNS servers to the ones that were designated by Cloudflare.
- And enabled some sub-domains with proxying and all things were working correctly.
- Later on, I decided to migrate this domain to another DNS hosting provider and changed the domain’s authoritative DNS server to something else.
- After several tens of hours, seems all DNS queries are through the new DNS hosting provider. Cloudflare’s status of this site still shows a green check mark.
- I created a CNAME record for one of the sub-domains
blog.example.comthat was proxied by Cloudflare with value
blog.example.com.cdn.cloudflare.netand seems the proxy is still working.
Looks like just moving the DNS away from Cloudflare doesn’t invalid current Cloudflare’s settings, including SSL/TLS and proxying.
So, I really want to know if there’s some clear statement of doing this on whether or not Cloudflare will eventually stop proxying the DNS moved away domain. Or if it would continue to work, will anything be broken, for example SSL/TLS certificates issuing?
