How To Delete Your Website From Cloudflare

How To Delete Your Website From Cloudflare

I know some people will be looking for this because it’s not that clear on Cloudflare’s website.  But if you want to delete or remove your domain from Cloudflare you have to pause your site first.  Then the option to delete your website is activated.  It’s not active by default which Cloudflare’s help section suggests.  It’s not as simple as clicking on the settings drop down because you won’t see any delete domain function until you pause your site.

Delete Cloudflare

The reason for deleting my sites was because one of the main sites I signed up with (this one) started acting funny after I activated Cloudflare.  I’m not sure exactly what the problem is but my site was working great before using Cloudflare and just seemed to have all sorts of problems afterward.  Anyway, I’ve deleted all my sites and will test to see if things change back to the way they were.  Hope that helps someone out there.

  1. My site is having problems too, after using Cloudflare.
    Thank you, Jeff, for your help.

    Best Regards.

  2. Me too! cloudflare caused all kinds of problems with my wordpress site. I still can’t get completely rid of the cloudflare buttons in some places, like on my hosting, and my wordpress dashboard. I seriously hate cloudflare now. I was always getting the ‘try for live site’ notice. it’s a great idea, but it’s a terrible service.

  3. Thank you. It’s nice to know that mine isn’t the only site that reacted badly to Cloudflare. I’ll be disabling it immediately.

  4. We’ve had cloudflare for a while now…our site has problems intermittently…now you’ve got me thinking that it could be cloudflare! Thanks for the post!
