Change Nameservers to enable Cloudflare

Hi anyone who reads this:

I have a domain name that was originally hosted by freenetname, then madasafish but now I'm told it is hosted by plusnet.

It looks like I need to make some changes to my website so it is more secure i.e. add SSL certification using Cloudfare.


Their quick guide says that they would require that the "Nameservers" on my account are changed from force9.net to the ones they specify.


Any tips on how I do this would be very much appreciated as Madasafish support have not answered my emails about this.

 

Thanks

 

Jon

I may be wrong but the namservers on a plusnet hosted domain are fixed to the plusnet ones

Hey @Jon66

Thanks a lot for reaching out. The short answer is that you won't be able to. For MAAF accounts, if we're the registrar of the domain, we also have to be the host. Smiley
