A message saying "Cloudflare is now checking the nameservers" doesn't resolve

When visiting who dot is/whois/simple.md I can clearly see that the domain is pointed at Cloudflare’s servers

But Cloudflare’s dashboard says I should remove the old nameservers and set up the ones I’ve already set.

Am I doing anything wrong?

Your NS are set correctly:

🚨 $ whois simple.md | grep -i "nameserver"
Nameserver:     derek.ns.cloudflare.com
Nameserver:     maria.ns.cloudflare.com

If I then dig for a DNS record at your root/apex:

🍩 $ dig simple.md

; <<>> DiG 9.18.0 <<>> simple.md
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:

So it looks like you don’t have any DNS records defined in Cloudflare - once you set these up - your domain should be working:

You’re right, I confused it with something else. Thanks!
