DNS Verification not Complete

I have a domain added to cloudfare for last few days. I have also updated nameserver accordingly and when I check Nameserver using dnschecker.org, it is pointing to right nameserver provided. Even site is working but domain is not getting validated on cloudfare.

What can I do next ?

Domain name: mountech.com.np

You set kevin as nameserver when you should have used burt. You need to fix this at your registrar’s.


your dns sittings is correct.
no need to do anything else about nameserves

And why does it not verify?

No offence, but your statement is incorrect and the OP has wrong settings, as already mentioned.

At this point the whole Cloudflare account was deactivated.

DNS name server is as requested on the account. Kevin is coming as automated name server resolution.

What’s unclear about this?

My registrar provides only two nameserver address fields. I have added :


You can see on DNS checker screenshot. It is correct on registrar.

Then you should talk to your registrar, as they obviously do not announce those nameservers.

nslookup -type=ns mountech.com.np pch.nnic.np
Server:  pch.nnic.np

mountech.com.np nameserver = kevin.ns.cloudflare.com
mountech.com.np nameserver = abby.ns.cloudflare.com

cloudflare will check the domain name server regularly. You can click “Check Nameservers” to initiate a check request to Cloudflare, or delete the domain name first and add it

The issue is not whether Cloudflare checks or does not check the nameservers. The nameservers are incorrect, as I have written twice already :wink:

The nameservers still aren’t returning the correct NS pair from the registrar as @sandro mentioned and @ymreg demonstrated with the dig +trace Until your registrar returns the correct result, the zone won’t verify. If you have the correct pair there, you’ll want to contact your registrar to confirm why they aren’t displaying the correct values.

Hi there,

I have a similar issue with my nameservers not being verified by Cloudflare? I changed these 3 days ago and I can see they have been updated in a reverse lookup. Can anyone suggest/offer some help as I am really confused??


Those are DNS records you’re looking at. The name servers have to be set in your domain registrar’s WHOIS settings.

Ok! Thanks for the heads up… I am following this up with the domain registrant :slight_smile:
