I moved NS server more than 24h ago, but cloudflare still waiting NS update

Hi there! I have 5 domains on the digital ocean. I changed NS record to required more that 24h ago, but cloudflare still waiting. How can i resolve my issue ?

Example domain?

195wilson.com

a11yn.com

staticall.com

themalaysiantiger.com

thysavior.com

Looking at the first domain:

Domain Name: 195wilson.com
Registry Domain ID: 2068719562_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.google.com
Registrar URL: https://domains.google.com

Name Server: NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM
Name Server: NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM
Name Server: NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM

Make sure you’re updating your nameservers at your registrar, rather than where your DNS is hosted.

I’m sure. For test i tried to change A-record and it changed ) nslookup.io shows me cloudflase NS and changed A-record, so i make changes in the right place

No, you did not.

dig +trace +nodnssec 195wilson.com NS

You created NS records at your current DNS provider, as you can see in the dig result, but that is not what you need to do. You need to replace the DigitalOcean nameservers with those provided by Cloudflare.

Likely at google domains based on the whois lookup.

Okay, but what with thysavior.com?
At the dashboard i see “pending” but in the DNS tab i see “proxied”.

How can i check if cloudflare is enabled on domain?

Pending means it’s pending the nameserver change proxied means traffic will be passing through cloudflare once the zone (domain/site) is active.

More details here

That :point_up: doc is also linked to from the dns app of your cloudflare dashboard on “pending domains
