In the previous post (CloudFlare – A Free CDN service for bloggers), I had explained you about Content Delivery Network (CDN) and key features of CloudFlare, which make this CDN service different from other CDN services.

In this post, I am telling you about how to setup a CDN setting of CloudFlare on your domain.

To setup the CloudFlare CDN setting on your domain, you just have to follow these simple steps as given below…

STEP 1: Before installing CloudFlare CDN setting, you should create an account in CloudFlare database.

STEP 3: Then click on “Add Website” button to setup the setting.

STEP 4: After that, a list of DNS records arrives in front of your screen, set up CloudFlare setting as per your convenience, then hit on                                           “I’ve added all missing records, Continue” button.
