How to Adding DNS records in Cloudflare

Note : If your domain still not enable with Cloudflare, please refer this tutorial on how to enable Cloudflare :

To add DNS record follow below step:

Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard.

Click the appropriate Cloudflare account for the domain where you will add records.

Ensure the proper domain is selected.

Click the DNS app.

The UI interface for adding DNS records appears under DNS Records:

Replace Name with a subdomain or the root domain.

(Optional) Some record types such A, AAAA, and CNAME allow a customer to toggle the Cloudflare proxy on or off. For the Cloudflare Proxy Toggle:

An orange cloud icon proxies traffic through Cloudflare for the DNS record Name.

A grey cloud icon ensures traffic for the DNS record Name is not proxied to Cloudflare. Cloudflare still serves DNS for a grey clouded DNS record, but no other Cloudflare features such as SSL, page rules, caching, WAF, etc are applied.

The Type selection defaults to A records. Click the drop down menu to change to other type eg : TXT, MX, etc
