Verifying Domain Name

Microsoft is trying to verify my domain name to set up my business account. I had no idea my domain had anything to do with Cloudflare since this is not who I paid.
How do I get my domain named verified?

You need to log into your cloudflare dashboard and add the verification record they supply. If you do not have access to the account, you’re going to have issues. Here are some links to figure out who put your website behind cloudflare. I suspect you’ll want to try the third link.

The only way you’ll be able to regain access is by having access to the email address of the account.

These links may help, but they only work when logged out

If you know the email:
If you know the email and have 2FA issues:
If you don’t know the email:

I tried the 3rd link you sent and received this message: You are not authorized to make changes to hope lean consulting .com

I had no idea what Cloudflare was. I am working with Microsoft to obtain a business email and the verification said I was under Cloudflare. I purchased my domain from Domain .com

Is that

I do not see any indication internally nor externally that the site has ever used cloudflare,

We have a lot of site using cloudflare on the free plan. In this case

Has been using cloudflare for about 4 months from what I can see in public records,

And whois shows it was updated 6/28 of this year,

Registry Domain ID: 2783397591_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN
Registrar WHOIS Server:
Registrar URL:
Updated Date: 2023-06-28T19:35:22

To get access, you should probably contact the organization you did pay to have them add the record you need.

Thanks for your help/ Much appreciated
