I have a domain that I use for email only. My previous dns host provider has shutdown and so the domain name is no longer resolving to an IP address. I have signed up with cloudflare to use the DNS hosting service but the set up process is failing when I attempt the “add site” step as it gets an error 1110 when trying to check existing DNS records for the domain (as the previous host is no longer running?).
I’ve logged a support ticket but as I am a “free” client I think I may be waiting a while for them to get to the issue and meanwhile my main mailbox is not able to be found by people trying to contact me. Is there anything I can do at my end to work around the issue or do I need intervention by a human type person within cloudflare?
