This can happen when the CNAME isn’t yet configured before adding it to app. Our TLS certificate issuer caches the NXDOMAIN (not found) DNS record, and the TLS certificate issuing is delayed. Normally it resolves automatically once the NXDOMAIN cache expires in about 30 minutes.

I have the same problem, Many hours, and the problem persist. :(

I seem to have the same issue. What I want to do is point a subdomain to my DO app.

Added a new app (the feature is great btw!), deployed it, and then added a new CNAME entry to my DO networking (DNS is managed by DO). Then getting “ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH”.

What did I do wrong here?

I made the error of adding the custom domain before the DNS entry was refreshed (due to TTL time). I’ve destroyed custom domain and added it again and now it works.
