I have spoken to several support agents all of them say the same thing. I have had no email from Cloudflare and there are no other options within my Cloudflare dashboard… Anyone advise what exactly is going on here?
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post…
I can confirm that is the error I am getting too! However, the tag has changed on its own (not long ago) and it does look like the transfer is going through. If I don’t update this thread, the transfer went through OK!
Yes, namecheap always throws that error when updating the IPSTag. I’ve told them about it (several years ago), but it fell on deaf ears. They must get a lot of support requests about it, but, up to them.
But many registrars have a “hacky” .uk domain control panels and some require you to submit a support request for .uk transfers as they cannot be bothered to write the extra code to deal with it. They lost my business because of that.
Cloudflare registrar itself doesnt handle .uk domains as well as they do other tld’s; my exepreience so far is that .uk domain handling is temperamental and i’ve had (and still have) various issues within them within cf registrar. However i’ve gone through them with support and they at least acknowledge the issues which gives me hope.
context: I have 1000’s of .uk domains across 10+ registrars.
I have the same error in my account, whois is showing cloudflare but registrar section still shows transfer in progress. Also transferred a few from namecheap a couple of days ago, had to get them to update the IPSTAG manually as their control panel was just garbage! I’m assuming it may just take a few days for the transfer to be totally completed and the option to renew domain to be available on cloudflare. If you could post the response you get here that would be great thanks!
I transferred several .co.uk and .uk domains from Namecheap to Cloudflare (after this one) and they all transferred just fine. It’s just this one domain that has the reported issue. That being said, I still haven’t had any response from Cloudflare support! This domain just forwards to another so it’s not urgent (Thankfully).
I transferred 4 yesterday, the 2 I did first are now showing correctly in registrar CP on cloudflare, the 2 I did later in the day are still showing the error. I’m thinking they will probably correct sooner or later and its just a case of waiting a while
