Want to use Name Server from Multiple DNS provider

Hey Team,

Following the good practice of using multiple DNS provider for a domain, I want to use CloudFlare and Route53 as the DNS provider for my domain.

Domain is registered to Route53, NS is updated to point to both Route53 and CloudFlare.

dig ns aurigo.info +short
derek.ns.cloudflare.com.
chin.ns.cloudflare.com.

dig ns aurigo.info +short
ns-1149.awsdns-15.org.
ns-1832.awsdns-37.co.uk.
chin.ns.cloudflare.com.
derek.ns.cloudflare.com.
ns-309.awsdns-38.com.
ns-927.awsdns-51.net.

I don’t see the domain active on CloudFlare yet:

Cloudflare periodically checks whether you have pointed your nameservers to Cloudflare. To perform an immediate nameserver check, click Re-check now .

aurigo.info is now queued up to be re-checked. Please check back in a few hours. You’ll also be notified by email once your site becomes active

Secondly why do I see varied response at dig response?

Cloudflare won’t add your site unless you’re only using the two name servers assigned to you.

While I understand the desire to use multiple DNS providers, it’s just not going to work in this situation.

I am willing to upgrade to a better plan if that is supported in there. But I need this option

:wave: @user9466,

You can use Cloudflare’s secondary DNS offering. You will need to contact sales as it is an enterprise plan feature.
