  • In this tutorial we will present the necessary steps to enable the services offered by Cloudflare for domains hosted on the cPanel control panel. Cloudflare can be activated individually for each domain.
  • There are two ways to enable the service: by setting the Cloudflare nameservers on the domain and managing the DNS zone in the Cloudflare admin panel , either by activating the service in the hosting cPanel, without the need to change nameservers on the domain. In this tutorial we will present the cPanel activation option. As an example, the hostico.ro domain will be used.


To complete the steps, we will need the following:

  • The login data of the cPanel panel, present in the email with the administration data.
  • An active Cloudflare account, which can be created from within cPanel or by logging in cloudflare.com


  • First we will login to the cPanel control panel.
  • Once logged in, we will go to the Software section and click on the button Cloudflare.
