Domain purchased on Cloudflare, but shows as NameBright

I purchased a new domain - - from Cloudflare on Feb 18. Invoice number CFUSA6316766.

It shows up as registered with NameBright and I never registered with this service.

  1. Did Cloudflare sell me an already active domain?
  2. If not, how do I update my DNS?
  3. If so, how do I get a refund?

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community. :logodrop:

The whois shows no mention of NameBright and the creation date matches your timeframe.

Strange. In the overview, it lists NameBright as the registrar. Perhaps a bug?

I can’t seem to find a spot to update the nameservers until Cloudflare recognizes it’s the registrar. I have a support ticket 2712249 out. I got the automated response:

(not very helpful, bot)

You said you purchased a .io domain, but your subsequent screenshots reference a .com domain.


You are correct.
In my brainlessness, I plugged the .com into the Cloudflare sites interface, and the .io was the site I purchased.
