Thanks you.

Is it the www URL, the non-www URL, or both that gives this error?

Are both of them using CNAME entries in DNS?

I’m sure someone from Support could figure it out quickly if you open a Support Ticket at and you haven’t changed your DNS entries here. I see you’re back to your old name server, but Support should still be able to look at your account settings to help track this down.

Thanks you.

  1. Do you have an real example ?

  2. Where i enter CNAME ?

  3. Do you have an example of CNAME ?

Normally, your domain entry here would point to an IP address of the server that’s configured to host your domain.

So…are your DNS entries here using A records, or CNAME records?

As far as I can tell, your DNS entries for the “www” domain is a CNAME for the non-www domain. I would use the same IP address for both entries instead of a CNAME.
