Hi @khalifa,

You need to have your Domain added first, have you done that?

Additionally, are you sure you’ve actually followed each step to the letter? I’m asking as most of the times it’s something small which gets overlooked and causes issues.

WHen you are adding your DNS record, what Values are you selecting and typing in?
