DNS Propagation Checker

Hello there

I’ve read quite few articles about DNS propagation, but again i don’t yet understand why is this conflict between two domain names. I’ll explain…
First i bought this domain name - zonatalk.com few days later i decided to change this domain name and bought monarku.com. The set up was done more than 24hrs ago and redone again few hours ago (this could have reset the clock). Now i can go to zonatalk.com and the site opens ok but when i try to go to admin dash the site name changes to monarku.com but does not displays anything.
Hope i made this clear to understand.

Also this link shows that propagation is still or not happening https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/monarku.com

Can someone explain why is this happening?
Thanks in advance,

have a look at your wp-conf.php file Here is a guide and don’t forget to enable Developement mode in Cloudflare and disable caching in your browser or you may not see any changes.


If it’s not that, check your Cloudflare Page rules.

Hey Withheld

From what i understood this has to do with the wp-option on phpmyadmin? If yes i have already done the changes to the new domain name (monarku.com). Anyway so i did follow the rules on the link (hope i understood them correctly) and edited the rules
define( ‘WP_HOME’, ‘https://newdomain.com’ );
define( ‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘https://newdomain.com’ );

also on a added to functions.php
update_option( 'siteurl' , 'https://newdomain.com' );
update_option( 'home' , 'https://newdomain.com' );

None of the above worked (unless i understood this wrong). As for the for the CF Page Rules there isn’t anything set under the newdomain.

now did i followed the instructions wrong?, or do you recommend one of the following?

  1. I can wait full 48 hrs for full propagation
  2. reinstall all from the start since this is a new/not public site

Kind regards,

Sorry for the slow response. If you’re willing to troubleshoot, have a look at your server logs then have a look at this guide from WP about changing your URL. https://wordpress.org/support/article/changing-the-site-url/

Otherwise, since this site is still under development, it would probably be faster and resolve any further issues to install from scratch.
