Where should Cloudflare Proxy be enabled?

Where should I enable the Cloudflare proxy and where should I disable it?
Please ignore the crossed ones.

Hi @mjunaid.ac ,

Hope you are having a great day !

  • You should set the proxy status based on whether you want the traffic to be routed through Cloudflare, or in DNS-Only mode.(Off the Proxy/Disable) If this is a verification record or for non web traffic, it should not be proxied.

Also I’d suggest you to read this for understanding about how to manage and add dns records

If you want an exact answer, here’s the list of records that you should put into DNS-only mode :grey: (based on educated guess):

  1. mail
  2. ftp
  3. imap
  4. pop
  5. smtp

From the list above, seems like they are serving non-HTTP traffic, which is not supported by Cloudflare’s proxy.
