How to change name servers when using Cloudflare Registrar?

Hello! How to change the Cloudflare name server address to another name server if you register a domain under Cloudflare.

Hi @jayaraja.rajamani,

Unfortunately, you cannot change name servers when using Cloudflare Registrar. This is mentioned in the Domain Registration Agreement:

6.1. Nameservers . Registrant agrees to use Cloudflare’s nameservers. REGISTRANT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IT MAY NOT CHANGE THE NAMESERVERS ON THE REGISTRAR SERVICES, AND THAT IT MUST TRANSFER TO A THIRD PARTY REGISTRAR IF IT WISHES TO CHANGE NAMESERVERS.

If you don’t want to use Cloudflare’s name servers, you will have to transfer the domain to another registrar.

Thanks a lot for your response and perfect reply. But it’s really something strange to see Cloudflare not allowing to change. But, every Register allows changing name servers in the world :wink:

I’m happy to help :slightly_smiling_face:

I believe Cloudflare Registrar is meant as an extra service for people who already use Cloudflare’s CDN, rather than as a general purpose registrar. But they definitely could - and should - make this a lot clearer.
