Question

DO cant verify im the owner of a domain

I bought a domain name and i want the wbsite to be hosted on DO. I went to the domain provider, updated the DNS and verified it was correct trough looking up the domain on WHOIS(stellarpenguins.com). I created a domain on DO and added a CName (www.stellarpenguins.com) to it that redirects to my app. After adding it to my app it gets stuck on configuring and after an hour i get an email stating DO cant verify im the owner of the domain. What might be the issue?
