How To Integrate Your Website With Cloudflare

How To Integrate Your Website With Cloudflare

 

Before we begin, it's important to understand the difference between a Partial vs. Full Integration with Cloudflare.

In short, a Partial integration uses your current name servers at KINGSCEL, i.e ns1 and ns2, while a full one requires you change your name servers to Cloudflare's.

If you decide to go with the full integration, unfortunately our team won't be able to support it, since we cannot access your Cloudflare account directly.

You can however, still use the free Railgun.

Setup Cloudflare Inside cPanel

Quicksteps:

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Navigate to Cloudflare
  3. Create An Account  NB:: After creating account close interface and login to cloudflare from Cpanel.
  4. Click Provision Account With CNAME/FULL Setup
  5. Enable Railgun(central)

Allow 24 Hours For SSL To Propagate

Remember, if you're using SSL on your website, it will have to be regenerated by Cloudflare.  This process takes up to 24 hours and may create errors on your secure pages.

Personally, I recommend enabling this during the weekend/off peak hours to avoid any interruption in traffic.

Since we have Let's Encrypt enabled, you can change your Cloudflare settings to FULL but it will still require that time to propagate.

It's also important that you enable "Development mode" when making changes to your website so you can see them update in real time.

Don't Overthink Cloudflare

For whatever reason, Cloudflare doesn't workout for some customers.

If it doesn't work for you, don't overcomplicate it.

Our network infrastructure has been designed to be blazing fast for your website without it.  However, if you want a little extra boost Cloudflare is available to do so.

But if it starts to create more trouble than it's worth, don't get too stressed out about it.
