If you're using Cloudflare for it's features, it's probably best that you go with Cloudflare for DNS too. If you've got atleast 2 servers and time to setup and manage your own DNS, go for that. But if you want something simple, go with DO.

  • Today use my own DNS, but with only 1 IP. This is very bad?

    Thank you.

  • DNS is designed for reliability and It's highly recommended that at least 2 servers (preferably independent of each other) be used so that it one where to fail, the systems still works.

  • At that time. I think the best is Cloudflare.
