Hello community - I’ve recently bought madcitizen.me domain from Cloudflare thinking it would be the same process as networksolutions.com or godaddy.com, but for some reason Cloudflare is a bit different and I don’t understand how to fix it. Usually when you purchase a domain name from godaddy.com or networksolutions.com every thing is setup and you can start ftping and creating your web site, well for some reason Cloudflare doesn’t act this way and it wants you to change the name server to theirs, but I shouldn’t have to change the nameserver since I bought my domain from cloudfare correct?
I get if I bought my domain from some other registar I would have to go grab Cloudflare’s and update it, but since I’ve bought the domain directly from Cloudflare shouldn’t the name server already be Cloudflare’s and ready to go? Here is a screenshot.
I’ve since opened a troubleshooting ticket for some help, but they advised me to reach out to the forums, so here I am. Please educate me on what I am missing. Really what I am trying to do is used madcitizen.me domain in my pfsense firewall and DDNS, not as a website.
Quick update: We replied to the ticket and have escalated this to the registrar team. This indeed looks like a bug and we’re awaiting a response from them. You’ll get an update as soon as we hear from them. I apologise for the inconvenience.
