Domain Redirect - ccgi to www. automated?

Hi,

Just configured a new domain, set DNS records

left field = www
type = CNAME
right field = ccgi.sophos9.plus.com.

Redirect does not work Cry

Does PN have to do some backend work?

Cheers

I guess in theory ccgi.sophos9.plus.com and ccgi.plus.net should point to the same IP address.

Maybe you haven't waited long enough after the change. I have known DNS changes to take 4 or more hours to activate, one needed 24 hours.

You could be right, domain transferred in this morning - records set this afternoon. nslookup on each of PN's DNS's shows them not updated, which is weird as I thought it would happen instantly... unless they are batched?

Have dropped support a mail...

DNS updates are not instant, also it took over 24 hours for my recent domain hosting to become properly accessible from outside.

You also need to set an A record for domain.tld

left = domain.tld. (note the trailing dot)
type = A
right = 84.92.1.4

Once set up a DNS record update will take about 4 hours to update on our name servers and possibly 24 hours to update on the caching name servers.

Hi Dave

The domain is working now, must have hit your name servers

Thanks for the help
