DNS resolution error
You’ve requested a page on a website (archive.md) that is on the Cloudflare network. Cloudflare is currently unable to resolve your requested domain (archive.md). There are two potential causes of this:
Most likely: if the owner just signed up for Cloudflare it can take a few minutes for the website’s information to be distributed to our global network.
Less likely: something is wrong with this site’s configuration. Usually this happens when accounts have been signed up with a partner organization (e.g., a hosting provider) and the provider’s DNS fails.

Setting your secondary DNS provider to Google or another provider should allow you to resolve it, but yes archive.md is ran by the same operator as archive.is; they use multiple TLDs to prevent a single registrar or registry from being able to take down their entire service.
