Pending nameserver update for over 48 hours

nameserver

#1

This seems like a frequent topic on this forum but of the threads I viewed, none had an answer or solution. Realistically how long does it take for Cloudflare services to recognize that my nameservers are in fact updated?

Domain: deusvult.xyz


#2

Are you sure they match exactly what was given to you? It’s pretty quick usually to activate a domain.


#3

I had correctly entered dilbert.ns.cloudflare.com but incorrectly entered ultra.ns.cloudflare.com instead of ulla. Would that really prevent CF from activating services?


#4

This site shows ultra.ns.cloudflare.com as one of them, this doesn’t appeared to be a valid CF nameserver.

Edit: saw your reply:
Yes, it would, they have to exactly match.


#5

Yes. Read here:

#6

Whois says

Name Server: DILBERT.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
Name Server: ULTRA.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM

Dig

$ dig ns deusvult.xyz +short
ulla.ns.cloudflare.com.
dilbert.ns.cloudflare.com.

My vote goes to dig results, I’ve never met anyone named ultra, but they sound important!


#7

Yeah, was on my mobile and checked only the WHOIS, seeing Ultra as a female name made me doubt that they were correct.


#8

And it looks like the correct changes were picked up, I show the site as active.


#9

Interesting read, thanks. I guess from now on I’ll either remember to use my reading glasses or simply use copy/paste. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#10

Copy and paste helps here :grinning:
