www.domain not recognised cname + apache alias added

DNS Apache

I’m sure I’ve missed something silly but can’t find what it is.
Have a domain called jslondon.org (which works fine) - decided to add support for www.jslondon.org by adding a cname and updating the apache definition with www.jslondon.org set as an alias.

www.jslondon.org does not resolve.

Worth noting that I’ve done the same with a different domain (gnesher.com) which works perfectly - so I’m obviously just missing something :/

  • Could you send the two apache aliases/host files in order for us to compare them?
    Are there any differences in the DNS config?
    Are you able to connect to www.jslondon.org through the IP?

Just checked, and it appears it may have been your TTL. Everything looks fine now.

Your TTL is ~30 minutes, so basically, you would have needed to give it half an hour before trying.
