Nameserver change not detected

I’ve easily transferred multiple domains (.com, .net) from Google to Cloudflare but having trouble with my only .dev domain: Cloudflare isn’t detecting the nameserver change, the site is “pending nameserver update”. Some DNS lookup sites also seem to be having issues with the custom nameservers set in Google Domains. Is there something special with dev domains regarding this?

Have you double checked that angela and dante are indeed the nameservers assigned to that domain? Can you maybe show a screenshot of your DNS dashboard that shows the assigned nameservers?

Domain according to the above is (NOTE: two consecutive H’s).

Domain added to Cloudflare is (NOTE: one single H).

I would suggest that you re-try Cloudflare’s [Add a site] function, using the correct spelling of the domain name, and then let us know if that works? :slight_smile:


sweet baby jesus how did I miss that. I’ve even deleted and re-added the same site to Cloudflare.
