Failed to lookup registrar and hosting information of example.com at this time. Please contact Cloudflare Support or try again later

I registered a domain (giraff-development.ga on (Freenom) a day ago. But when I try to add it to Cloudflare it is giving me this error:
“Failed to lookup registrar and hosting information of giraff-development.ga at this time. Please contact Cloudflare Support or try again later.”

But when you visit the website, it will resolve. I also looked at (this article), but that did not help me. So I am lost now. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Greetings,
Sjoerd

That domain is registered under a TLD which is governed by the Freenom registry. Freenom currently experiences issues with their Whois service which prevents such domains from being added to Cloudflare. Freenom needs to fix that on their side. Unfortunately there is no ETA known for that.

It probably is best to register a proper domain instead. They already go for less than $10 a year.

Ok, thanks for the info! I’ll look into the prices and stuff.
