Wave 5 of Cloudflare Registrar Unavailable

Ok I’m a little confused and would like some feedback from somebody because frankly I can’t seem to find anything similar to the problem I am experiencing anywhere here or on in the Help Center, at least not with my 3-5 minute search, mind you.

So my issue is that I signed up for Cloudflare Registrar maybe a week ago, and I was immediately issued to Wave 5. Well, getting back on today, I had to reapply for the registrar feature because nothing was ever applied to my account. So I did. And once again, I got the email confirming my sign up and I was once again set for Wave 5 (“Estimate: December”). Well, here we are, a friend of mine who also uses Cloudflare was in Wave 7 and has got the registrar already. Not to mention, it keeps prompting me to “claim my place” whenever I go back to the dashboard in Cloudflare. So yeah, I don’t know what is going on. I wasn’t going to immediately switch to Cloudflare Registrar anyway, but to have the feature for later when I do decide to would be nice. Picture was attached as proof. I have another one, but since I’m a “new user” to CF Community, I can’t upload it in this post.

Maybe @cloonan or @SamRhea can help here. Nothing specific that the community can do.

Ok, I will try to get in touch with them if possible. Kind of sucks that of all the people who use Cloudflare, it seems to break for me! I find that kind of funny actually. Thanks for the reply, man.
Edit: Not sure how to DM on here…

DMs aren’t generally available to non-CF staff. Since they were mentioned they’ll see this thread next time they come online.

oh ok, thanks for letting me know

The “claim my place” for me stayed in place under Home tab even after confirmation of my place in queue. I was Wave 1 and have moved all domains with no issues. Not sure why system never saw that Place had been claimed.

If you were skipped during your Wave cycle - I’d assume something glitched somewhere. If that is case - those mentioned above will be able to fix that for you.

Hi @Ty_Q - you should definitely have the feature in your dashboard now. If you log in to your account, in the first screen - the one where you select a zone, you’ll see a new tab called “Domain Registration”. Let me know if you don’t.

I just checked and then I compared it with my friend’s dashboard, and yes, I am still indeed missing it.!


It is also still showing the “claim your place in line” button when I go to “Home”
Edit: I boxed the API tab just to reference what I was looking at.

Hi Ty - could you go up one level to Home? You’ll see “Domain Registration” next to “Configuration” - if not, let me know what email address you use and I’ll make sure it’s enabled

Not going to bother sending an image right this minute. Just take my word for it:
In Home: It shows the tabs “Home”, “Members”, “Audit Log”, “Billing”, and “Configurations”. Other than the listed site, it shows “Claim your place in line” (which I have clicked on multiple times already).

In the Configurations tab, it has two categories: Custom Pages and Preferences. It does not say anything even closely related to Domain Registration. Is there any way I could PM you the email? I really don’t want to just give it out to the public.

Sure thing - send me a note at srhea at Cloudflare dot com
