Nameservers set ok but Cloudflare not detecting it

HI, I have set my nameservers on my domain name and Cloudflare has even recogised it, but it has not allowed me control.

Im stuck on Complete your nameserver setup…
It says:
Change your nameservers from:


??? I have tried clicking Re-check now many times? to no avail.
Been like this for 2-3 days now :frowning:

Anyone else got this? Bug in the system?


Did you update your nameserver records in your domain registrar?

It’s a good thing that they did mention the domain: There seems to be a typo though:

DNS shows the domain is delegated as such: 86400 IN NS 86400 IN NS
;; Received 93 bytes from 2001:660:3006:1::1:1#53( in 437 ms

But when I ask Cloudflare what nameservers should be used, we get something slightly different: 86400 IN NS 86400 IN NS
;; Received 93 bytes from in 35 ms


My bad :blush:, apologies!

Grr, Trying again… again…

Thanks for the post, it could well be a spelling mistake,l it has happened. its a manual process to add nameservers on the .td namespace (apparently).

When I run the following (from my home machine):

C:\Users\James>nslookup -type=ns
Server: google-public-dns-a-REMOVED

Non-authoritative answer: nameserver = nameserver =

I do not see that spelling mistake? Am I missing something?

Cloudflares policy is restricting me from posting more than 2 “links”.


The typo is at your registrar:

You can see the actual delegation using this web based dig query

nslookup won’t show the issue here because is valid, and when you ask that server you get the correct answer (showing gwen and lynn), but Cloudflare is checking the delegation.

Great dig resource, thanks for linking.
Iv asked my registry to update the NS, but it is a manual process, so may take a few days.

Thanks for your help
