Good to hear that it’s not a nameserver issue.

Huh? It is a nameserver issue, look at the title!

I know, i was just expressing my happiness!

I recently redirected my FreeNom domain ( to my domain from Google Domains ( using CloudFlare.

thinking why admin would make this topic when he can’t contact freenom support nor working as sysadmin at freenom.

Because it is an issue that effects the platform, as well as your ability to host a website using those domains here.

There were quite a lot of people here who asked questions like “hey, why can’t I access my site” and “why does it say my nameservers are not set because they are set”.

It’s not an issue with our system, but it did affect many people here, which is why this announcement went up.

That says, it seems fairly quiet now, so it might be over.
