hey everyone so welcome back to another tutorial and today i’m going to teach you how you can uh use cloudflare with namecheaps managed hosting easywp so let’s start and for this um i’m going to show you how you can use it with your domain register on both namecheap and godaddy so i have a created account just to show you uh just to create this tutorial so i can show you how to use uh if your domain is registered with either of this name cheap
or godaddy i will teach you how you can connect it to your easy wp and use it with cloudflare okay so i have already logged into godaddy namecheap and easywp and the another thing i forgot is to log into cloudflare so if you already don’t have a cloudflare account i would teach you how to create one and it’s really simple right now i have already logged in but i will log out and show you again okay so this is how this page will look and this is
you can see here the sign up link just click on it and it will ask you for your email id and uh you will have to create a password so you can set your password here enter your email id then click on create account and then you will get a verification email in your inbox email inbox so just click on that and your account will be created so and after creating account just sign in so i will just log into my account okay once you have logged into
your account um you will see um here you can see there is a pending up site but you will see either option of add site like this here or you will find this option here it’s pretty simple or even if it is not visible this uh here uh you can find it on the top uh top bar okay so there are multiple ways to find this just click on add a site option and now enter your domain name here so for this tutorial i’m going to use uh my test domain okay so i will just copy it and sorry let’s move it here and then paste it here just your domain name do not add ww dot or http or anything just your domain name and make sure that there are not any spa spaces or anything then click on add site okay now here select the free plan okay once you have selected the free plan cloudflare will scan your existing dns records and it will show you here and right now you can see there are
two records um this a record and cname so what i will do is delete both these records delete it later okay now let’s go to easy wp dashboard okay this is the dashboard and select your account just click on it you can see right now i’m using the temporary domain so do not worry if you are using a permanent domain the process is same basically and so what i will do is scroll down and go to this option domain and click on this option change okay so
right now here if you are using a domain or namecheap either this option the first option will be selected or second or if you are using a temporary domain like me you will see this option okay so let’s say you are using a this option domain on another provider the steps are basically same you will have to actually click on the second option only doesn’t matter which option you are using right now first the second or third you will have to use
the second option okay and you will see if any domain is configured here or you will see an option to add one okay so i will just click on edit and you will see this option to type your domain so again i will paste my domain name here okay and then you will see a cname record here okay you can see the second in the second step there is an option copy the text below and create a new alias record in your domain dns preference so
what we have to do is copy this okay and go to cloudflare um click on add record and here select cname okay use add the rate and target is paste what we copied from this easy wp dashboard okay now um make sure though to unselect this just click on this cloud icon because if it is set to proxy um and this record will not work properly so click on save now okay this record has been created and according to the easy wp this record should be enough
and you can see here because cloudflare applies cname flattening the third step is to click on continue okay step will be to click on continue and then um you will have to use this dns cloudflare will give you this records you will have to copy both them now you can see this copying option just click on it if you are using uh namecheap you will have to uh you will see your dashboard like this select the right domain click on manage and then here
uh a name server pick custom dns and paste it here similarly copy the second record paste it here okay and then um click on this tick mark so now it will show you that this changes will take like 48 hours to take effect so that’s it you are done and and i will show you now how to do it with godaddy again go to godaddy and go to your my product section if you cannot find this option it will be available in the drop down menu okay go here and then
you will see this my products option just go here select the domain go to dns and from here scroll down and again you will see the name servers option go to click on change and here click on this option enter my own name servers advanced and here sim again the same process go to cloudflare copy first record copy second record and then click on save okay so that’s again the process is same this is the fourth step basically and now once you have
done that again it will take like 24 hours so usually it is done in two three hours or you can keep refreshing the records get updated okay once it is done you will have to go back to cloudflare and then click on this option done check name servers okay you can also see here registrars typically process name server updates within 24 hours once this process completes cloudplayer confirms your site activation via email so either you can manually
keep checking on done check by clicking on this option or cloudflare will automatically keep checking your site if it is pointing to their name servers at regular intervals and once they detect that they are you um your domain that destroy has updated the records they will send you an email that your record has been updated and now your domain is using cloudflare service so that’s how easy it is to do you will have to just complete the steps
still here and you will automatically get an email from cloudflare after few hours and it’s all done okay so then your site will be using cloudflare and then just i will just right now click on this manual option uh done check name servers and for this i would recommend you to right now select flexible okay so if for some reason if your site does not does not have a valid ssl certificate um your visitors will not see any downtime or you know
error of security errors so i would recommend you to flexible and later once cloudflare gets activated you can change it to full awful strict okay and in the scroll down and turn on this option always use https so it will redirect all your non-secure traffic to the secure version of https and then click on done so that’s it so right now you can see here that and the our name server has not been updated or cloud player has not been able to detect
it so once they are able to detect it you will get an email and that will be it so i hope you found this tutorial useful i understand that it became a little bit too long and maybe a little confusing but i will add step step numbers so that you will be able to easily understand it but once you are done say once you set it up then you do not have to you know make changes or do anything and that’s it so once for once you will have to spend some
