Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet.
One of Cloudflare’s most useful and little known features is that it allows developers and hosts like DevOps & Platforms to manage DNS zone information on behalf of the true domain owner.
You can specify alternate nameservers at GoDaddy, Network Solutions, Tucows, Route53, etc. and manage them from within the Cloudflare console. Updates are nearly instant and the service is ultra reliable.
Clients maintain ownership of their domain names at whatever registrar they originally used.
Cloudflare’s DNS service has become an indispensable tool for the team here at DevOps and Platforms. It is free and available to anyone who wishes to take some time to learn how to use it effectively.
