How to make CNAME redirect to other host work?

Hi, Need some help adding a subdomain and redirect it to other host. In DNS settings I have added CNAME and I can see it in zone file: … 1800 IN CNAME

But it doesn’t work for some reason. I’ve waited for a day and I have tried various DNS lookups (mxtoolbox and others) - DNS records not found.

What I am doing wrong and how I can make it work?
