If this is the first time accessing the CloudFlare interface, you will be asked to create an account. Provide your email address and agree to the terms of service once you read it. You will then be emailed a welcome email by CloudFlare for your HostLatte account Once your account is created, you will be taken to the CloudFlare interface which lists all of your accounts domains. By default, they will not be powered by CloudFlare (Gray Cloud) To enable CloudFlare for any domain, simply click on the cloud. Once selected, CloudFlare will be enabled and the cloud will go from a gray cloud to bright orange cloud. Once enabled, you can select the 'Statistics and Settings' option to view traffic for your domain and also modify the security settings. Your site is now fully CloudFlare enabled. To disable CloudFlare, simply select the orange cloud again and it will be grayed out, indicating CloudFlare is no longer enabled Note: CloudFlare does not modify the base A record for your domain (IE: and only modifies sub-domains / CNAME records. If you want your base domain to be CloudFlare enabled you'll need to have it redirect to To achieve this follow these instructions: Add or modify your existing .htaccess file (usually located in /home/yourusername/public_html/.htaccess) and add the following lines: RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC] # Replace with your actual domain RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301] # Replace with your actual domain
