Archive.is not accessible

Whenever I’m trying to access archive.is i get an error DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN in Chrome.
Once i disconnect from cloudflare (either in chrome or android) archive.is website works again.
Is there any reason for that?
Thank you

Yes, actually. Matthew Prince (Cloudflare CEO) commented about this on HN. It’s a bit of a long read

From that HN thread:

The archive.is owner has explained that he returns bad results to us because we don’t pass along the EDNS subnet information.

EDNS client subnet

1.1.1.1 is a privacy centric resolver so it does not send any client IP information and does not send the EDNS Client Subnet Header to authoritative servers.
