Site can't be reached - Cloudflare as registrar but says “Authoritative Nameservers Set Incorrectly”


Without anything from my side, my site became unreachable.

How is that even possible?

Thanks in advance

Also opened a ticket about that.

Strange a bit, but may I ask have you had DNSSEC enabled (DS record) before switching to Cloudflare nameservers?

For the domain name I see its recently registered and it’s registrar status is:

  • clientTransferProhibited, clienttransferprohibited, pendingdelete, redemptionPeriod

Which might be the reason why.

Furthermore, did the domain expired recently and you renewed it in the last seconds or so?

Was it before using Cloudflare nameservers or did you switched to them lately, but before you’ve added it to your Cloudflare account?

Nevertheless, I see its registered with Cloudflare Registrar.

Kindly, may I ask you to share a ticket number here with us so we could escalate it.


I’ve escalated it and it’s been forwarded to the appropriate group. This will have to continue on the ticket.
