I'm having "SERVFAIL" when trying to create an SSL certificate for my domain

I’m having “SERVFAIL” when trying to create an SSL certificate for my domain and always displaying “Pending Validation (TXT)” on the universal ssl page.

It doesn’t appear the name servers have fully propagated out yet: DNS Checker - DNS Check Propagation Tool

I would also check out the certbot-dns-cloudflare plugin. It will work better than the http-01 challenges

why is the permanent (7 days) Pending Validation (TXT) uniserval ssl still hanging?

I would try disabling it, then re-enabling it. The button it at the bottom of that page.

Tried, didn’t help. Even transfered it to another Cloudflare account - same thing.

Make a ticket using the following guide (https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200172476-Contacting-Cloudflare-Support#h_7b55d494-b84d-439b-8e60-e291a9fd3d16) please make sure that you switch to the new support portal.

You’ll probably get an auto close response, but post the ticket number here, and we can re-open and escalate.

Hello,

I see there is one active certificate for this domain now. Is the issue now resolved?
