Hi, I am looking for assistance with removing my Cloudflare Free account and setting up a 3rd party (value added reseller, VAR) VAR account with Ionos. The VAR cannot setup the account as it appears as though Cloudflare is still “linked” to my domain. While I have “removed” the site from my Cloudflare account the VAR still cannot add CDN/Cloudflare capabilities to my account.
Note: No DNS changes were made at either Cloudflare nor the VAR
- Day 1 - Signed up for Cloudflare free account to test capabilities for domain - added domain but DID NOT update DNS entries at Cloudflare or VAR
- Day 2 - Decided to leverage Cloudflare services via VAR. Signed up for Cloudflare via VAR
- Day 2 - Removed domain from Cloudflare account
- Day 3 - VAR indicated they cannot setup Cloudflare for domain as it is currently associated with Cloudflare - note no DNS changes were made whatsoever.
Does it take some time (how much time?) for Cloudflare to release a site/domain, even though they did not do anything with DNS entries?
