Nameservers do not work or DNS issues on Cloudflare?

I added 2 new domains (i do this every day) but these domains keep having the status “Pending” without any progress. I put in the correct Nameservers with my registrar but i’m already waiting 3 days? Normaly its live in about 2-3 hours, but why does the domain not resolve within Cloudflare (free) ? I dont see any known issues or breakdowns so whats going on?

The domain is and mxtoolbox says its okay but i cannot resolve the domain. the website and mail is down and the DNS records cannot be pinged?

Your site resolves OK for me…

Your DNS record isn’t proxied. redirects to but the certificate on your server is only for so gives a warning.

* SSL connection using TLSv1.3 / TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
* ALPN, server accepted to use h2
* Server certificate:
*  subject:
*  start date: May 23 07:48:15 2024 GMT
*  expire date: Aug 21 07:48:14 2024 GMT
*  subjectAltName does not match
* SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name ''
* Closing connection 0
* TLSv1.2 (OUT), TLS header, Supplemental data (23):
* TLSv1.3 (OUT), TLS alert, close notify (256):
curl: (60) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name ''

I fixed it myself by settings back the NS to the old registrar, then i disabled the DNSSEC and then i put in the new cloudflare NS again. then it worked within the hour… pfff thanks anyway!


Make sure to fix your SSL certificate. You should use Cloudflare with SSL/TLS set to “Full (strict)” here…
…so that connections between Cloudflare and your server are encrypted and secure, but that will give an error until you fix the certificate.
