Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I originally bought a domain from namecheap.com then I bought hosting at inmotionhosting, where I pointed the DNS from namecheap to inmotionhosting... now I signed up with cloudflare and pointed DNS to cloudflare instead of inmotionhosting... now since I've pointed it to cloudflare, do I really need inmotionhosting? Can't I stop paying for their service?

Was DNS hosting the only thing you were using at inmotionhosting? If so, then yes, you should be fine ditching that service.

thanks for responding. Can I add both cloudflare DNS and inmotionhosting DNS to cheapname? –  andrewliu Oct 22 '12 at 22:25
No. Well theoretically yes, but you don't want to so that. You need to choose one provider to be your authoritative dns host. –  EEAA Oct 22 '12 at 22:47
ahhh okay cool thanks! –  andrewliu Oct 23 '12 at 5:00
