Why is my domain not resolving (or why won't my url forward) when using the required DNS records?


Make sure you click "Save" when you are done updating the DNS records. It can take up to 2 hours for any urlforward type  DNS changes to take effect. Additionally, DNS servers or local computers around the world may have cached any old DNS records, so you might have to allow a few hours for them to refresh their cache.

The standard period for DNS records to globally propagate is 24-72 hrs.
