Is this CNAME record correct? It doesn't seem to be working


#1

I have two domains, mediasavvy.com and mediasavvy.org. I want visitors to .org to be arrive at .com.

To do this, I used the the CNAME record below in my DNS settings for the site.

After 24 hours, I’m still getting an error when I visit .org

A CNAME is a DNS pointer and does not perform an HTTP redirect, which is what you want.

You’d need to set up a page rule which redirects to your .com domain. For that you need the page rule but also DNS entries, the latter can point wherever you want though, as they only serve to create the entry itself for the page rule.
