It is possible to use Cloudflare DNS for AMIMOTO managed sites after making a few changes to the default settings from the Cloudflare Dashboard.

It's important to disable their Proxy feature as Shifter provides CDN services through Amazon Web Services which it is built on.

1. Login and navigate DNS

Click Orange Cloud ("DNS and HTTP Proxy (CDN)") and turn it to Grey Cloud ("DNS only") when adding records for bypassing Cloudflare on existing DNS records.


4. Add ALIAS/ANAME record
