New cname records not updating

I have updated 2 CNAME records but these are not loading. Does it take a long time for Cloudflare to update CNAME DNS records?

DNS propagation can take a while, and there’s a tonne of places DNS records can be cached all along the way, from your computer, to your ISP, to your VPN service, etc.

If you’re using a proxied record (orange cloud), the change should be basically instantaenous. If you’re using non-proxied records (grey clouded), then in extreme cases, DNS propagation may take anywhere from a few seconds, up to 48 hours - your TTL on the records will have some impact here too.

Can you share any more information about your domain, the CNAMEs you’ve changed, etc.?
