In this article, we will show you how you can add A records into your Cloudflare account, easy and super fast, just in a few steps.
For example, our WPX Cloud (XDN) uses 4 A records to work. We will use those to show you how you can add A records into your active Cloudflare DNS zone.
Step 1. Log in to your WPX account.
You can log in to your WPX account here.
Step 2. Find the Cloud IP addresses.
Now that you are logged in, navigate to the Service Details menu to get the IP addresses. You can do this from your Dashboard, by going to My Services (1) → WordPress Hosting (2) → Manage service → Service Details (3);
Step 3. Log in to Cloudflare.
Next, log in to Cloudflare and from the Home page select the domain, for which you want to change the DNS A records.
Once you select your domain name, choose the DNS section from the left side menu.
Step 4. Manage your DNS Records in Cloudflare.
On the next screen, you will see Cloudflare’s DNS editor from where you can add or edit the A records.
Add DNS records
To create a new record, simply click on Add record, there you will be able to specify the record type as well as other required fields: ( A, CNAME, TXT, MX, etc.)
Edit DNS records
To edit an existing record, click on the Edit button.
If you don’t want to use our WPX Cloud while using Cloudflare, you just need to add just two A records.
One for your website (same as domain) and one for the www version of the site. In the section IPv4 address (required), you need to use the Server IP Address. You can find that in your Service details menu, under Server details.
