Custom Domains & Forwarding
So I know I can add a CNAME record under my DNS settings from my domain provider but I don't know if this alternative was allowed or not which is why I'm asking. Admins, please don't delete or suspend my account if this isn't allowed, I am happy to remove it if needed. All I did was add a domain forwarding in my DNS settings and set the type to "mask", entered the title, description, and keywords and in about 2 minutes I could type in my domain and it would go to the replit page I made. Is that allowed?

What is your DNS provider? Are you using Freenom?
Also, can you send some screenshots of your DNS layout/setup?
@DylanEliot Freenom allows you to get free domains. Granted, they're free so they're pretty crap and they swipe them from you if the domain is too popular. Although, it's good for beginners who don't have money but want a "good" place to put their website.
We all know that paid domains are better, beginners just don't have money to spend on domains and hosting, so they resort to free.
