Redirecting to AWS CloudFront not working


I created CNAME record for CNAME

However I get DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN when I visit

What could be the problem? Dns propagation? My DNS managed by digitalocean.

Hi there @winkan.32,

The website seems to be loading as normal already. Note that it usually could take up to 24-48 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see your latest DNS changes.

You could use a DNS tool like this one here to check your DNS records status:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby

It was a bit unusual for me to wait that much for that CNAME because A records are available almost immediately. Thanks for information.
