Unable to Transfer Domain from Google Domains to Cloudflare: 'Zone is not active'

I am trying to transfer my domain from Google Domains to Cloudflare, but I am encountering an issue where I cannot proceed with the transfer because the “Transfer to Cloudflare” option under “Domain Registration” in the Overview menu on the right is disabled. When I hover over it, it shows a message stating “Zone is not active.” How can I resolve this issue and successfully transfer my domain from Google Domains to Cloudflare? Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.

You need to follow the steps outlined on the left side of your image, “Complete your Nameserver setup”.

Hello!

The zone must first be active on the account before initiating the registration transfer.

For additional information, please make sure to review the following page: Transfer your domain to Cloudflare · Cloudflare Registrar docs

Hope this helps!
