Cloudflare failing to recognise the existence of a newly registed domain

We are trying to add the domain which was registed on 13/04/2021 as can bee seen from whois:

$ whois
Domain Name:
Registry Domain ID: 5900303-IEDR
Registrar WHOIS Server:
Registrar URL:
Updated Date: 2021-04-13T14:41:05Z
Creation Date: 2021-04-13T14:41:05Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2022-04-13T14:41:05Z
Registrar: Letshost

Unfortunately Cloudflare reports the error “ is not a registered domain” when you try to add if via the “Add a Site” button.

I have raised a ticket with Cloudflare, but they have directed me to ask the Community.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be wrong?


The domain is not resolving, and I see these messages in WHOIS:
Domain Status: pendingCreate
Domain Status: serverHold

And the Registry says it is still in a pending create state.

The domain needs to be active, and have working nameservers before being added to CF.


Thanks sdayman and michael.

I had not spotted those bits in the whois output. Stupid me!

I’ll read things more carefully in future.
