Domain Registrar

Hi there

By chance i noticed on my dash that cloudflare is now doing domain transfers from other registrars. I also checked that cloudflare offer whoisguard for free (please correct me if i’m wrong) but what i also noticed is that cloudflare does not register for the first time (again, please correct me if i’m wrong), meaning that i have to register first somewhere then transfer to cloudflare, unless i missed the link to register with you instead of going in circle

Thanks a million,
Eddie

That is correct. You will have to register somewhere else, then wait 60 days before you can transfer that domain registration to Cloudflare. Baby steps. Hopefully soon we will be able to register domains right here in the first place.

wow that was supper fast.

I understand. So for the moment namecheap offers free whoisguard. Basically clouflare will offer the same (except the price)?

Exactly! :wink:

This is how a whois response looks like when searching for a domain that has Cloudflare as Registrar:
