HELP!!! I can add Freenom Domains again
We have seen many questions and answers regard to the freenom domains and people are saying freenom’s WHOIS is broken (with respect to ICANN lookup)
I got a new freenom domain just now. Tried to add it in cloudflare and faied with this error:
I checked the ICANN Lookup and it said:
Then, I tried to add my domain with ClouDNS to check whether cloudflare could do smtg atleast then.
I NS records of ClouDNS in Freenom and added A record in ClouDNS point the root to 126.96.36.199 (! just to check)
Now, the ICANN Lookup gave the same results. No change.
And, I tried whois in a linux terminal:
Hmm… Probably the whois program doesn’t check with ICANN but no worries let check the A record and voila!
Hence, my conspiracy theories:
- CloudFlare is incapable of providing full DNS services/support as other simple DNS hosts (Shame!)
- CloudFlare Wantedly Avoids domains from Freenom using some mechanism. (I strongly believe in this)
- CloudFlare and only CloudFlare follows the standards in the whole World!
- Im Dumb (probably)
Please give some clarity and correct me if Im wrong.
