Cant add a new site

Im trying to add my domain, but it says like “Failed to lookup registrar or hosting information.” The domain itself is fully working and registered. Also many says the problem is on the freenom side, but everything works on the freenom side? Can it actually be cloudflare, or is the problem on cloudflare side? Or doesnt cloudflare just want to support those free domains anymore? Hmm.

That domain is registered under a TLD which is governed by the Freenom registry. Freenom currently experiences issues with their Whois service which prevents such domains from being added to Cloudflare. Freenom needs to fix that on their side. Unfortunately there is no ETA known for that.

No, it really doesn’t.

I’m having the same issue. I’ve checked the Freenom Whois service and it actually works. Maybe their service is intermittent and just so happened to work when I checked, but I dunno. I just find it weird that I cannot add my domain back. (It was deleted from Cloudflare because I failed to renew it on time.)
