Failed to lookup .tk domains when trying to add a new domain

Hi there,

I’m trying to see if someone can help me with this issue I’m having. For some reason, I’m not able to add my .tk domain I got from “freenom.com”. I keep getting this message every time I try to add the domain ( Failed to lookup registrar and hosting information of domainName.tk at this time. Please contact Cloudflare Support or try again later.) I been trying to add the domain for 3 days now and If I try too many times it actually locks the domain and I have to wait longer to try again.

Any ideas on what I can do to be able to add the domain?

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.
