Cloudflare DNS is powered by the same network as our lightning-fast CDN. We resolve domains with the same 180 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.

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.
