Cloudflare is a must-have if you would like to ensure your website’s stable and fast work, and protect it from DDoS attacks. To connect your domain to Cloudflare, you need to point it first. The process will differ depending on if you purchased Cloudflare at Hostinger or activated it manually with Cloudflare.

If you have Cloudflare purchased at Hostinger

NOTE:

  • If your domain is purchased at Hostinger, and you activated Cloudflare after the 2nd of December 2021, your domain was pointed to Cloudflare automatically upon Cloudflare setup 🚀

After setting up your Cloudflare order, open HostingManage Cloudflare:

There you will find your Cloudflare NS records (they are unique for each account, make sure to copy the records from hPanel):

All you need to do is access your domain’s DNS zone, and change nameservers to the mentioned ones.

NOTES:


If you activated Cloudflare directly

In case you still wish to point your domain to Cloudflare directly, it can be easily done by following this procedure:

  1. Create an account on Cloudflare.com

  2. Enter your domain name

  3. Select a plan

  4. You will be presented with the required Nameservers. Copy the values and change nameservers at your domain’s DNS Zone

After you specify new DNS records, propagation will start, which can take up to 24 hours to fully propagate.
