Try the suggestions in this Community Tip to help you fix Code: 1049.

A Code: 1049 is returned when trying to add a domain to Cloudflare. When this happens, in your browser you’ll see the message similar to “ is not a registered domain (Code: 1049)”. The error Code: 1049 means the domain isn’t registered, the domain has no name servers, the domain name servers can’t be resolved, or the domain name servers don’t contain any DNS records and as a result the domain cannot be added to Cloudflare. The error does not mean the zone is banned, simply that it cannot be added at the moment.

Quick Fix Ideas

  1. The domain does not return valid name servers. In order to add a domain to Cloudflare, the domain must first be delegated to valid nameservers. Either park the domain using the registrars default nameservers or delegate to a third party DNS provider temporarily. Either action will allow you to add the domain.

  2. Use the following website to test if there are any nameservers resolving for your zone. If you enter your domain name and click on the button, this should show you the nameservers for your domain: Dig web interface.

  3. The domain is not registered. Run a whois command to verify if the domain is valid, $ whois

  4. If the TLD for the domain you want to add is .gov, please post on this site and ask that an MVP escalate your post for the attention of the Registrar team. .gov domains require manual intervention from Support to add them to an account.

  5. You changed the nameservers to Cloudflare nameservers but did not +Add a site to Cloudflare first. Change the nameservers back, ensure they are responsive, add the domain, and then change the nameservers to the two assigned to that domain as shown on the DNS app of the Cloudflare dashboard.
