Problem with Too many requests (Code: 1118) when trying to add bigger amount of domains

ExpertTip

#1

Hello, I tried to add a bigger amount of domains with the API, but unfortunately I am not able to add any more - also not possible in webinterface (1118 problem).
Can anyone provide a solution for this?
I would need to check first which names of my list are already in Cloudflare and than add the ones which are not in yet.
I have made a pause of a few seconds after adding each name, to be sure not to exceed the limit.
Many thanks for all your efforts!


Also have a rate limit error

You probably need to slow down your requests even more. A few seconds might not be enough. How many records did you add?


#3

I have planned 3000 for first “round”.


#4

Domains or DNS records?


#5

3000 Domains - 1497 items are already “in”.


#6

You should wait more time, you obviously exceeded some limit.


#7

Thanks I tried already contacting support 3 days ago, but unfortunately I have got no response. I think the best would be, when they would add it. It should be much easier for them, and I do not want to exceed any limit.


#8

Well, support wont add domains. You simply need to fall within the limits. If you add them too quickly you will get an error. Just slow down the requests.


#9

What time is practicable for slowing down? Thanks


#10

Only support can tell you that, but with 3000 domains I could imagine several days or more.


#11

Hello, unfortunately support is not replying since days and there is still “too many requests”. Does anybody know how long it can take to get a reply?


#12

When did you open the ticket? Take the weekend into account.

We have limits on the number of pending zones allowed at any one time. If you’ve added dozens/hundreds/thousands of domains you will need to verify/validate pending domains before we’ll allow more to be added/increase the number of allowed pending zones.


Code 1118 - Too Many Requests

Hello, thanks for your information. The problem is that all domains I have planned to list have the same nameserver “group” set.
In total there are around 3300 domains, which I could change automatically in just two little steps costing me seconds.
Otherwise I would have to initiate all manually at registrar by hand.
Would be nice if you see a solution in this way.
