DNS pending nameserver update/Cloudflare protection for domain pending

I created a new domain directly with Cloudflare, It has been pending 5+ days. DNS records match but on the top of DNS page it says “Cloudflare protection for your domain is in a pending state while we verify ownership. This could take up to 24 hours to complete” …

What is the domain?

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community. :logodrop:

The two most common causes of the symptom you describe are:

  1. Adding NS records in your zone at your current DNS provider instead of replacing your old nameservers with your Cloudflare nameservers at your registrar.
  2. Adding your Cloudlfare nameservers at your registrar and failing to delete any other nameservers.

For answers specific to your domain, we will need to know its name.
