Exactly the same for me as this post: .uk domain in invalid state after transfer
Recently initiated the transfer of three .co.uk domains to Cloudflare, after I had already successfully transferred some less important (testing) .co.uk domains.
My former registrar (Uniregistry) changed the IPS tags on all three domains to CLOUDFLARE as requested, but Cloudflare hasn’t accepted the domains, even though it’s been several days. From experience with some other .co.uk domains, this usually happens very quickly after the IPS tag change, sometimes within minutes.
All three domains are now showing in Cloudflare registrar as ‘Invalid Date’, and I’m concerned the domains are now in limbo, with neither registrar. Thankfully, the nameservers on the domains are still correct, and DNS is being provided.
I have raised a ticket with Cloudflare support, but so far only had an automated reply, stating that .co.uk is not a supported TLD for the registrar, which is obviously not correct. Ticket number is 2275969.
Based on my experience with other domain transfers from Uniregistry, I suspect it could be the DNSSEC DS keys I had set on the domains. Sadly, these were not removed prior to the change of IPS tag. With other non-co.uk domain transfers, the transfer didn’t go through until the key had been removed from Uniregistry, and I could remove them at Uniregistry, then the domains sailed through. However, once the IPS tags have been changed for the .co.uk domains, Uniregistry have no control over the domain, and I have nowhere to manage the domain details, nor remove the DS keys.
Uniregistry have advised that I could initiate an incoming transfer request for the domains at their end, then if Cloudlfare can change the IPS tags back to UNIREG, I will regain the domains.
Anyhow, I’m stuck without control of my domains, and really hoping someone at Cloudflare can help me sort this.
Thanks in advance for any help.
