Question

Cloudflare migration - what do I do with DNS records from DigitalOcean?

Hi,

I am trying to move my website to cloudflare I scanded the nameservers and changed them in the place where I bought the domain.

But now they are still in DigitalOcean. Do I remove them and add the new ones or just remove them?

CNAME www.roofing-area-calculator.com Copy is an alias of roofing-area-calculator.com. Copy 43200 Copy More

NS roofing-area-calculator.com Copy directs to ns1.digitalocean.com. Copy 1800 Copy More

NS roofing-area-calculator.com Copy directs to ns2.digitalocean.com. Copy 1800 Copy More

A roofing-area-calculator.com Copy directs to 134.209.184.255 Copy 3600 Copy More

I am so confused about this stuff… thanks for help!

If you have scanned the DNS records in CloudFlare, verified that all the DNS records have been added to your CloudFlare plan and changed the NameServers at your domain registrar (i.e. GoDaddy, Enom, Hostking) then you can just remove the records from Digital Ocean. But make sure that all the DNS records have been recognized by CloudFlare as their scanner only scan’s for common DNS RECORDS.
