Hi there,

As you are getting a UnKnown response from the nslookip, keep in mind that it might take up to 24 hours for the DNS cache to clear up once you’ve made a DNS change.

Regarding the main domain not responding, once you’ve changed your nameservers, did you add an A record for to point to your server IP address?

As a side note, regarding the CDN, usually, I would go for or rather than www as the www version is, in most cases, an alias for the main domain name rather than a CDN.
