How to update your nameservers from your domain registrar to point them to Cloudflare?
At FirePress, we highly recommend that you put your website(s) behind Cloudflare. If you choose Option B as detailed here « How can I configure my domain or DNS to FirePress servers » you must configure the NS as detailed here.
- Updating your NS will allow our team to configure all DNS records for your domain.
- You don't need to create a Cloudflare account, FirePress manages everything for you. But if you prefer to manage your Cloudflare account, it means you choose Option C as detailed here « How can I configure my domain or DNS to FirePress servers ».
Update your NS (nameserver)
- Find the section where you can configure DNS setting for your domain.
- Remove whatever NS currently exist and enter these two:
- Save your changes.
- Registrars can take 24 hours to process nameserver updates. You will receive an email when your site is active on Cloudflare.
For the TTL value under your NS setting, set it at 300. It means 300 seconds before pushing the next update. If your registrar doesn't allow you to update the TTL, don't worry about it, they use a default value.
Some downtime might happen while updating your DNS record(s). Please refer to this post to understand the impacts.
