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:
...
get.minbie.com. 1800 IN CNAME unbouncepages.com.

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?

According to the DNS information for this domain, it is not currently pointed at our DNS servers. The domain reports it is using the following servers:

Name Server: ns3.easyclouddns.net
Name Server: ns2.easyclouddns.net
Name Server: ns1.easyclouddns.net

In order to create records for your domain in our DNS service your domain needs to be pointed with your registrar to:

ns1.digitalocean.com
ns2.digitalocean.com
ns3.digitalocean.com

Ah, you're right. Thanks a lot!
