Pointing a Domain to Netlify

Hi, I am fairly new to Netlify and I just added my custom domain name to Netlify.

I am prone to using CloudFlare for all of my websites and so I did the same for this one as well. However, when adding the domain name to the Netlify custom domain names, it asked me to update the Nameservers for the domain.

I was wondering if there’s any other way to connect a custom domain to Netlify app? What if I want a sub-domain to be pointed to Netlify and not manage the whole DNS here in Netlify?

If there’s a way to do it, please share any help article or any information.
