Do you have any more information that indicates that .tk domains are not resolving for you when using

I am not sure i think its region specific only in india.

I have attached for same result one with google dns and other with cloudflare dns. You can see cloudflare dns has empty a record.

Hm interesting to see that it took there several seconds for the DNS query from
What happens if you try querying with instead?

Same issue here in Pakistan… No .tk domain getting resolved

Same issue with and similar query time as well.

Looks like the issue is resolved…i can resolve .tk domains from cloudflare now

Can confirm its fixed now. It was an issue for like 24 hours.

Not sure what was the cause for this issue.


If you look into the OPT=15 line, it indicates the extended error is 22(0x16), it was somehow that in some region, our server was not able to reach the name servers.

I figured that the default dns servers of my isp airtel were also not resolving dot tk domains So somehow airtel was responsible for the issue and i think cloudflare also uses the same routes that might have been the issue.
