Removing a domain from Cloudflare

Learn how to remove a domain from your Cloudflare account. Once you remove your domain, your site no longer benefits from Cloudflare’s security, speed, and reliability.

Before removing your domain

If you experience website issues, we recommend temporarily pausing Cloudflare first and contacting Cloudflare Support to ensure that any issues are fully resolved. 

Removing your domain from Cloudflare will automatically cancel a paid plan (Pro or Business), but does not automatically remove active subscriptions, also known as plan extensions. To avoid unwanted charges, cancel your subscriptions first, then remove your domain from Cloudflare.

If after you have contacted Cloudflare support, you want to proceed with removal, follow the instructions outlined below.
