Freenom ml domain stuck in pending

Same issue happening for me as well. I have given the correct name server in my domain configuration and updated it. But sill seeing message that name server has to be updated in Cloudflare site

What is the domain @ashoktvm ?

$ whois
Domain Name:
Domain Status: No Object Found
>>> Last update of WHOIS database: 2023-08-23T23:22:42.644Z <<<

Are you sure it is registered? If you registered it through Freenom, do understand they no longer manage the .ml ccTLD.

yes I am using freenom. So what can I do now?

Find a new domain.


any suggestion for free domain?


I suggest paying for a domain. They aren’t overly expensive to register. And when you pay for one you get more security.


I have the same problem with on Freenom

  • set name servers several days ago,
    checked re checked et… nada …
  • deleted and started again & waited - still nothing
  • looked at DNSSEC … sadly didn’t tell me a lot … that I understand.
  • seen this thread and checked whois
    connect: Network is unreachable

Does this tell me that Freenom is busted?

This domain was working in May, but I took the system down for other reasons, it got purged and cannot get it back up.

Any suggestions please?

Definately being managed by Freenom …

As above @semi.jon

$ whois

Domain Name:
Domain Status: No Object Found

As per the Mali ccTLD Manager

Notice: As of July 19th, 2023 the .ml ccTLD registry is in transition of back-end registry systems and day-to-day operations.
Data provided by Freenom has been inported into the AGETIC registry.
More information will provided in the near future.

You can contact them from the page above, but at this point the domain will not work.

A search through these forums would have provided this information


cheers mate.
I didn’t realise my problem was with the TLD, suspected I’d not configured it right.
Will use another domain.
