Re-add the domain to cloudflare and nameserver checking is pending

I removed the domain from Cloudflare when I wanted to re-add the domain name server. The nameserver check is still pending, however the domain was active before and the nameservers have not changed


It is hard to say without the domain name what could be happening here, if you are able to share the domain name, we can take a look to see if anything obvious stands out.

Here are the most common causes for a zone stuck in pending.

  1. Check if DNSSEC is disabled for your domain at your registrar, as this can prevent the nameserver update from completing.
  2. Verify that the nameservers listed at your registrar match exactly with the ones provided by Cloudflare.
  3. Use a tool like whois or dig to confirm that the nameserver change has propagated across the internet.
  4. If the nameservers are correct and DNSSEC is disabled, you may need to wait up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect.
  5. If the issue persists, contact Cloudflare support for further assistance.
