DNS A record for DOKS load balancer not resolving

I created a LoadBalancer Service in my DOKS following this guide: I confirm that I can access my deployment via its external IP.

I tried adding an A record in my Cloudflare DNS that maps a subdomain staging to the LoadBalancer’s IP address.

For some unknown reason, my DNS does not want to resolve this A record. Is there something I need to add to my LoadBalancer spec that will accept requests from my subdomain request?

Hi there,

Usually, it could take up to 24 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the new DNS records.

What you could do is to use this DNS lookup tool here to verify if the new A record is in place:
