Hi there @HarryS,

Could you expand on your question, please - Are you hosting your website on a droplet and simply want to point your domain, which has its DNS controlled by Cloudflare, to it?

Hi,

Here’s a guide on how to setup CloudFlare from their official support forum:

If you already have CloudFlare setup and you want to access your site directly from your server by baypasing CloudFlare, you could do that with your local hosts file to skip the DNS lookup.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
