Transfer challenges:

I have a domain that I want to transfer to Cloudflare. It’s been added to my account and is using Cloudflare’s nameservers. However, when I try to transfer the domain, Cloudflare doesn’t recognize it as a transferable domain. It also says that the domain has unverified contacts but clicking on the link brings me right back to the same page. So I don’t know what’s missing and what needs to be done to correct the situation. Any help will be appreciated!

What’s the TLD of the domain?

It’s a .com

I see it was registered on April 7th, so it should be outside the 60 day transfer window. Is it unlocked?

Here are the instructions:

And a similar thread on unverified contacts:

The domain isn’t appearing in the list of ‘select domains to transfer’ so I am not even getting to the stage of entering an authorization code etc. I don’t think it’s an unlocking issue but have unlocked the domain and removed domain privacy (not something I am comfortable about) while I wait for Cloudflare to recognize it. The few times I have transferred a domain into cloudflare, (I host a few there now) it automatically recognizes domains that are eligible to be transferred in the ‘select domains to transfer’ tab.

If the usual Clear Browser/Different Browser/Different Device doesn’t work, then you’ll have to open a ticket:
