When I use Cloudflare, do I need my own host?

I’m new to Cloudflare, and I don’t know much about hosting.

My simple question (I guess) is this: When I use Cloudflare, do I need my own host for my website?

I’m paying for a hosting solution here in my own country, Denmark, but when I’m setting up CNAME records for some attached subdomains to my regular domain https://jimihove.dk, my hosting company tells me I need to fix it in here on Cloudflare, because “They are hosting you”

Well if Cloudflare is hosting my site, do I need to pay the other hosting company money then ?

I’m very satisfied with Cloudflare.


yes, you need a hosting space of your own. Cloudflare is just a reverse proxy to your server.
