Can I enable CloudFlare on my root domain (i.e. mywebsite.com) that is an A record?

CloudFlare can only accelerate and protect CNAMEs, not A records, which often includes the root domain. If traffic goes to a root domain and you want to accelerate and protect the traffic using CloudFlare, you can add a redirect to ‘www’ in your .htaccess file.

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysite.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.com/$1 [R=301,L]
