I manage two websites and two domains for myself right now. After I learned about CloudFlare to improve performance and increase security I manually added the first website to CloudFare.
- Signed up at for free account at CloudFlare
- Added website
- Changed DNS at my domain provider (namecheap)
Everything works out. Now I find that I can enable CloudFlare within the Dreamhost Panel (Manage Domain). So I give it a try with my second website. Enable CloudFlare via Dreamhost Panel -> it’s automatically added to CloudFlare. I can actually see it in the CloudFlare Dashboard.
- Is there any difference in doing this by myself or activating it via Dreamhost Panel?
- If activating via Dreamhost Panel, do I have to still change the DNS settings at my domain provider (or are there some to me invisible redirects)
