Do I need to change my nameservers to use CloudFlare?

There are two ways of using CloudFlare, and it depends on which way you signed up.

If you signed up through your cPanel at BetterWebSpace

You do not need to update your nameservers, a CNAME is used to direct traffic through CloudFlare.


If you signed up directly with CloudFlare

You'll need to change your nameservers to use ClouldFlare. Once these have been changed any changes you make in cPanel to the zone file will need to be made again at CloudFlare. This is not recommended for most users.
