Why wont cloudflare recognize my .tk domain like it did in the past?

I don’t understand what the problem is. It is an active domain and I own it. Previous .tk domains I have owned and used all worked perfectly. I cant find anyone else with similar problems that actually have an actual solution. Please walk me through my problem instead of redirecting me. I get the error message “Failed to lookup registrar and hosting information of darknationmc.tk at this time. Please contact Cloudflare Support or try again later.” The only problem is everywhere else I check it says the domain is active and valid and can identify it. Why can’t Cloudflare? I even used the Diagnostic center and it even identified it was a valid domain but it for some reason does not when I try to register it.

“That domain is registered under a TLD which is governed by the Freenom registry. Those TLDs currently experience issues their Whois service which prevents such domains from being added to Cloudflare. Freenom needs to fix that on their side. Unfortunately there is no ETA known for that.

It probably is best to register a proper domain instead. They already go for less than $10 a year.”

So only thing really doable at this point is to go ask Freenom when they will fix their service.

Whois does respond correctly for that domain. Checked locally on my computer and on 2 servers:
