Solved Need help for setting up personal domain

Post by dominic.japan January 13th 2023, 17:06

Hello, I already own and use domain (dominicmcclintock.com) - i.e. blog.dominicmcclintock.com and you can see a test of it. Smile

My issue now is that I just purchased credits and now premium. I am trying to set my custom domain and already made the required CNAME changes in my Domain's DNS settings and verified with nslookup in command line

Here are the results of my nslookup from my local computer's command line to show

Code:
dominic@dombuntu:~$ nslookup
> www.dominicmcclintock.com
Server:      127.0.0.53
Address:   127.0.0.53#53

Non-authoritative answer:
www.dominicmcclintock.com   canonical name = community-oki-jp.forumotion.com.
community-oki-jp.forumotion.com   canonical name = q50.maxns.net.
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 94.23.76.111
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 94.23.159.185
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 178.33.115.32
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 178.33.43.150
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 188.165.2.137
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 178.33.44.177
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 178.33.43.178
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 94.23.150.222
Name:   q50.maxns.net
Address: 94.23.73.212

You can see how www.dominicmcclintock.com resolves to my community forum (same listed in my current settings)

However, when I press the validate, I get this error

Your CNAME must redirect to : community-oki-jp.forumotion.com

But I think there might be a delay for this to work. Is this normal behavior? Should I wait longer.

Sincerely,
Dominic

I made a new CNAME to social.dominicmcclintock.com and this is working, just got to wait for SSL cert creation. I know it said a few hours. Cool beans. Thank you.

Sincerely,
