Switching from Cloudlfare to DigitalOcean name servers without drop?


I’m in the process of moving my website from Webfaction to DigitalOcean. My email is Google Apps hosted with DNS running through Cloudflare. So far, the experience with DO has been really great (even though I’m not technically skilled at all) so I’ve been thinking of skipping Cloudflare all together.

If I set up all the correct DNS servers for Gmail for my domain in DO - will I be able to make the move without any drops as soon as I switch name servers?

You’l lose all CF features if you do. Configure the DNS in your DO panel first and then change nameservers.
