Pending nameserver update cloudflare

I submit a domain to configure my website on cloudflare. Even though I turned off DNSSEC and added NS for it on Route53 (my main domain provider), after 2 days I still see the status as pending. Can I get support to push faster?

Hi there,

You have the domain k????h.com pending nameserver update because you still have the AWS nameservers.

Try running this command:

dig NS yourdomain.com +trace

See how before the Cloudflare nameservers there are 4 AWS NS? This means that the authoritative DNS is resolving to AWS and then AWS is resolving to Cloudflare, this does not work this way. In order for your zone to become active, Cloudflare nameservers have to be set at the authoritative DNS and have to be the only nameservers being propagated.

Take care.
