Which features of cloudfare are available without name server transfer?


It’s currently not clear if transfer the NAMESERVERS to cloudfare is a MUST in order to use features like CDN, Page Rules, ETC.

Can we use the CDN without transfering the nameserver/proxying the requests to Cloudfare?


Cloudflare has a LOT of features.

Magic Transit is available with the limitations you described as is Magic Wan and Cloudflare gateway.

Without changing your name servers you could do a CNAME setup to proxy traffic through Cloudflare’s WAF, but if you want to simply continue traffic directly to a domain without Cloudflare being an inline proxy your options are limited by the nature of how the interwebs work.


What about CDN features, it’s automatically enabled by CNAME setup?
