Why am I not able to add this domain?

Why am I not able to add this domain?
Error (groza.website is not a registered domain)
It is registered!! so Why am I not able to add it?

What error are you seeing? It’s letting me enter that domain name:

Yeah, it’s letting me add it too!


A Code: 1049 (Not a registered domain) is returned when trying to add a domain to Cloudflare. When this happens, in your browser you’ll see the message similar to “example.com is not a registered domain (Code: 1049)”. The error Code: 1049 means the domain isn’t registered, the domain has no name servers, the domain name servers can’t be resolved, or the domain name servers don’t contain any DNS records and as a result the domain cannot be added to Cloudflare. The error does not mean the zone is banned, simply that it cannot be added at the moment.

Quick Fix Ideas

  1. The domain does not return valid name servers. In order to add a domain to Cloudflare, the domain must first be delegated to valid nameservers. Either park the domain using the registrars default nameservers or delegate to a third party DNS provider temporarily. Either action will allow you to add the domain.

  2. Use the following website to test if there are any nameservers resolving for your zone. If you enter your domain name and click on the button, this should show you the nameservers for your domain: Dig web interface.

  3. The domain is not registered. Run a WHOIS command to verify if the domain is valid, $ whois example.com.

Hope this helps!


Considering it let me add that domain to my account, it’s probably either an issue of bad timing, or something with their account.
