Unable to transfer to Cloudflare Registrar because domain "Requires Full DNS Setup"


I’m trying to transfer my domain name from GoDaddy to Cloudflare. My site is hosted at DreamHost and uses CloudFlare via DH’s affiliate Basic Free service. But on the Cloudflare domain transfer page, this domain is listed in the “Unable to Transfer” tab with the explanation: “Requires Full DNS Setup”.

What is a “Full DNS Setup” in this context?
What are the steps for resolving this?

I can’t find any documentation so far, so I’d be very grateful for any insights! Thank you. =)


You basically need to disable the Cloudflare service at your host and sign up for a proper Cloudflare account on Cloudflare’s site.
