Somewhat stumped. I am trying to get a root domain (niftycraftroom.co.uk) to point to ncr.rndthoughts.co.uk using a CNAME. ncr.rndthoughts.co.uk points to the actual IP using an A record. However, pinging fails to find the host.
I know the services are up as I can open www.niftycraftroom.co.uk and I have a redirect in place from root domain → www on my server but unsure why the root domain isnt found?
That does resolve for me:
$ dig niftycraftroom.co.uk +short
And it does redirect to www
$ curl -I niftycraftroom.co.uk
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently

That seems to work for me as well.
$ ping niftycraftroom.co.uk

Many thank - you’re right, it must have just been some caching somewhere. Working now.
