Right now saying anything in this regard is difficult as Cloudflare hasnt started operating (publicly) as registrar. Wave 7 is quite late and might be tight if your renewal is in a month. Furthermore Cloudflare does not support .uk right now.
I’d consider transferring somewhere else if you dont want to renew with your current registrar. Next year Cloudflare should be operational and might support .uk, so you could still transfer to Cloudflare at that point.
That article is correct, but only refers to support of adding such domains to Cloudflare’s core service, not the registrar bit.
Right now Cloudflare only supports TLDs listed at https://www.cloudflare.com/tld-policies/, however only for accounts which have the registrar functionality already enabled, which only applies to internal test accounts at the moment. .uk is not on that list yet, though I’d assume it will be eventually supported in the future, but I wouldnt bet on either of both happening before you have to renew.
Thanks for your help. Not being that knowledgeable, I just assumed that it was OK. Especially as it accepted my application, WITHOUT FLAGGING the issue.
What will happen when my WAVE7 application reaches the top of the application pile? Do I need to cancel anything? Should I be resetting my name servers? Do I even know the questions I should be asking?
In case you hadn’t noticed, I barely know what I’m doing…
Increase of what functionality? You are only using it for email, right?
As for pricing, Cloudflare states it will charge the net price for all domains, so it shouldnt get any cheaper than that, but that is of little use of course if they dont support .uk, respectively there are other (more or less) equally cheap registrars too. How much are you paying for the domain right now (excluding any other services)?
