CNAME propagation


#1

How long does it normally take to propagate a CNAME record ?

I have the following record.

_732c900bb1d660fb6d5f5f3c71902026.test-api.steadypay.co. 1 IN CNAME _61536581e315a3e1874b02736f8d103d.hkvuiqjoua.acm-validations.aws.

Doesn’t seem to get an answer with a dig

dig CNAME _732c900bb1d660fb6d5f5f3c71902026.test-api.steadypay.co.

; <<>> DiG 9.10.6 <<>> CNAME _732c900bb1d660fb6d5f5f3c71902026.test-api.steadypay.co.

It resolves for me with A records:

$ dig _732c900bb1d660fb6d5f5f3c71902026.test-api.steadypay.co

You can’t have both A records and CNAME records for the same name at the same time. My guess is that you want Cloudflare OFF for this CNAME (grey cloud instead of orange one in DNS settings at Cloudflare; click the cloud to toggle the state).

You are right. Thank you.
