I’m trying to setup my new domain with Cloudflare SSL and noticed that they now have a Registrar service, so I purchased my new domain through them. The problem is that for some reason they don’t let you change the nameservers for the domain like with every other registrar I’ve ever worked with.
Unfortunately if Cloudflare won’t let you able to change nameservers for your domain then I guess you won’t be able to add that domain here on InfinityFree.
You might not be able to add that domain here on InfinityFree but I think you can still use that domain to point to a hosting account here, create a new or use an existing hosting account here and create your site on that hosting account and then create an A record for your domain from Cloudflare that points to the IP address of your site in that hosting account and your domain should display your site.
To find the IP address of your site, please refer here:
There should be a way to validate an addon domain without changing the nameservers. Some hostings have the option of checking for a specific file inside the htdocs directory so you can prove you have control over the domain.Or like I mentioned before, creating a specific CNAME or TXT entry in the DNS.
Alternative domain verification methods are on our wishlist. But until that’s done, you MUST be able to change your domain’s nameservers. If you can’t change the nameservers, you can’t use your domain with your current registrar.
Maybe tell about something like “It’s free hosting from ByetHost.”, “Only change the NS temporarily to validate my domain.”, & give screenshot (below, for example) to Cloudflare support team. they will consider it.
I already asked them a few days ago but haven’t received a reply yet. In the meantime I had to look for another hosting that let me verify the domain ownership without changing the nameservers. After the 60 day waiting period, I’ll switch from Cloudflare Registrar to NameSilo so I can verify the domain with InfinityFree.
Thank you for your assistance and hope to be back soon.
