Domain name not active in Cloudflare


We’ve recently moved one of our existing domains to Cloudflare to support CNAME flattening. We’ve created a domain in the dash, added a CNAME record and updated the NS records in our previous dns provider to the Cloudflare nameservers as per usual, however the new records appear to be resolving to our old site.

I’ve noticed in the overview panel that the domain in Cloudflare isn’t active yet. Is this an issue with Cloudflare or our the DNS settings in our register?

Kind Regards,

Nameserver updates can take up to 24 hours to propogate. If you’ve set your nameservers just wait until it’s active.

Unfortunately it has been nearly 7 days since the NS records were changed on the registrar.

What’s the domain?

I can see the nameservers are Cloudflare ones, and to be precise. I’m assuming these are the expected ones?

If so, I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be active. You could try setting it up again.

Thanks. I may need to try that out.

This is my first post here so please be gentle with me!
When I look at the domain Cloudflare are not the Nameservers for the domain.

Take a look at Zonemaster for more details but it shows these are the nameservers

Hope that helps

The forum does not know any such thing. This is Mad Max land.
