Cloudflare DNS is powered by the same network as our lightning-fast CDN. We resolve domains with the same 165 data centers that cache our users’ content, making us the fastest DNS provider globally.
DNS changes propagate orders of magnitude faster since we can avoid waiting for DNS TTLs to expire. This means migrating web hosts or switching over to a disaster recovery server happens almost instantaneously.

Cloudflare DNS is DDoS protection for domain resolution. It sits behind the same 25 Tbps network that protects over 12 million Internet properties from denial-of-service attacks. Cloudflare DNS also comes with built-in load-balancing, automatic failover, rate-limiting, and filtering. Cloudflare also offers DNSSEC to add a layer of trust on top of DNS by providing authentication. Two-factor authentication is available for all plan types.
Customers on the Business plan receive a 100% uptime SLA. Enterprise customers get 2500% uptime SLA.
To add a new DNS record, choose the record type you want to add and then the appropriate values for that record type. The update to DNS should take less than a minute.
Once you’re set up on Cloudflare’s DNS service, you can decide to enable additional features. In your DNS record, you’ll be presented with an orange or gray cloud. Orange means that Cloudflare is turned on and your traffic is routing through Cloudflare’s network, which will help your website run faster and block potential web threats such as DDoS attacks and other common web threats.
Everyone’s Internet application can benefit from using Cloudflare.
