Recent Switch to Cloudflare DNS: Experiencing DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN Errors

Hello Cloudflare Community,

We have recently switched our DNS to point to Cloudflare’s CDN and have started encountering intermittent access issues with various pages, displaying the error: “This site can’t be reached. Check if there is a typo in DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN.” This issue isn’t constant but happens sporadically, which disrupts the stability of our DNS resolutions.

Here are some specifics:

  • The issue started occurring shortly after we switched our DNS configurations to Cloudflare.
  • Errors are resolved temporarily by refreshing the DNS cache, but they eventually reoccur.
  • No significant changes other than the DNS switch have been implemented.

We’re looking for insights or recommendations on how to stabilize our DNS performance and resolve these intermittent resolution failures. Has anyone else experienced similar issues after switching to Cloudflare? Any troubleshooting tips or fixes would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
