How to setup a domain on Cloudflare

To experience the benefits of Cloudflare, first create a Cloudflare account and add a domain to Cloudflare. When you create a new Cloudflare account, adding an initial domain is included in the workflow.

Create a Cloudflare account

  1. Visit https://dash.cloudflare.com/sign-up.
  2. Enter your Email address and Password.
  3. Click Create Account.

    Use an email alias or distribution list (i.e. [email protected]) This email alias is the main point of contact for Cloudflare billing and service-related email notifications. Ensure that the email alias can both send and receive emails for account recovery and troubleshooting.
    4. The Cloudflare UI asks you to add a site to Cloudflare.

Add a domain to Cloudflare

1. Log in to your Cloudflare account.

2. Click on Add site from the top navigation bar.

3. Enter your website’s root domain and then click Add Site. For example, if your website is www.example.com, type example.com.

4. Cloudflare attempts to automatically identify your DNS records. This process takes approximately 60 seconds to complete.

5. Click Next.

6. Select a plan level. (If your domain doesn’t have heavy traffic, the free package works just fine)

7. Click Confirm in the Confirm Plan window that appears.

8. Review whether all DNS records were identified in the DNS query results window. (If your domain is a new domain, you most likely need to setup your DNS records from scratch, if you need a better understanding on how the DNS works, check our blog article we’ve talked about DNS )

9. Click Continue.

10. Copy the 2 Cloudflare nameservers displayed and click Continue.  

11. To finish domain setup and activate your domain on Cloudflare, change your domain nameservers to Cloudflare.
