Cloudflare works as a bridge between a domain name and web hosting. You map the domain with hosting by adding the hosting nameserver to the domain name. To use Cloudflare, you replace the hosting nameserver with Cloudflare nameservers. Breeze is a Cloudflare partner, and we recommend using the Cloudflare service to connect the domain name and configure the DNS.
To configure the DNS using Cloudflare, you need to make an account on Cloudflare. The Free Cloudflare account will do.
#1 Set up a Free Cloudflare Account
Create a free Cloudflare account.
Once the email verification is done, and your account is ready, you can add the domain to Cloudflare.
#2 Add the Domain name
Click Add a Site button, or Add site from the menu.
On the next page, enter the domain name.
#3 Add the Cloudflare nameservers
Go to the DNS section and scroll down to find the Cloudflare nameservers.
Whichever domain name service you are using (GoDaddy, NameCheap, NameSilo, BlueHost etc), you will need to add the nameservers. Add these nameservers there.
#4 Point the nameserver to the hosting server
Go to the DNS section in Cloudflare and add an ‘A’ record.
Insert domain name in Name, and IP address in the IP address box. Enable the proxy to turn on Cloudflare on this domain. And that’s it. You have added your domain to Cloudflare.
