Cloudflare A AND CNAME DNS Entries

Good day,

I have a site on Homestead(https://marinermechanical.homestead.com), and web hosting is the only service I use. Mail is through Office 365, DNS is on cloudflare. 

I simply need to know the values I need for the A and CNAME records to enter into Cloudflare to get my main domain name pointing to the homestead.com site. I cannot figure out which origin server my site is currently on as everything seems to point back to 108.167.135.213 which seems to possibly be a load balancer.

The domain is marinermechanical.com. Right now I have them set to this(as that's the IP I get back from a ping), but the site is simply being forwarded to Homesteads main website. 

CNAME
www
marinermechanical.com
A
marinermechanical.com
108.167.135.213

Help?

Thanks for that Russell. None of Domain stuff was setup, however, it was working just fine for years until we moved the DNS hosting to cloudflare. Strange. Anyways, I set it up and all appears working now. Thanks again.

@elyzabethv​ per the new email rules as of 2-1-24 I'm trying to add cname records to authenticate my site so emails get delivered... under advanced dns settings, it says to click 'edit' to add records, but there is no edit button! How do we do this?
