"Run The Repl to See The Output" on custom domain
After you add the cname then press "done" and almost instantaneously (if its not check you added the right record and re do it, if it still takes a while guess you'll have to wait a bit) it will be linked. If it still shows that run the repl button then contact/file a bug report because that's clearly far from normal.
@AdCharity I did that, thats the outcome
I asked replit contact to remove it from my domain as I accidentally put in my full and not my subdomain, but it hasn't been removed and is still the same. Should I wait for them to remove it or should I just make repl.it retry with my subdomain and see if that fixes it?
Because I did the CNAME and thats the output ^
@AgastyaSandhuja um it might. Explorers test out repl beta features which may... impact overall performance. Ok I'm just going to take a bunch of screen shots and show you what I mean (this is for a .tech domain, but rest assured the process is the same for all providers).
Copy and paste the cname and press done. If it doesn't work, consider taking off the explorer role/contact the bugs.
EDIT: This could take a while to actually link, but usually it happens within a couple minutes.
Hi! first thank you so much for replying Id really love to get this working.
Sorry, im very new to all this, so just to make sure i'm understanding correctly and on the same page, from my perspective theres 4 different steps:
1.) registering your domain name, for me i did this through google domains and lets say i registered domainname.com
2.) on repl.it, while in your webpages repository, clicking the "Custom Domain" button and entering the domain your registered name so for me that would be "www.domainname.com". Then before clicking next:
3.) copying the CNAME and entering it in google domains along with 'www' in place of the '@' symbol
4.) going back over to the repl.it window and clicking next, and clicking the large green 'run' button
These are the steps ive followed thus far, please feel free to let me know if i have a misunderstanding in there somewhere, but im not too sure what you mean when you say "DNS record has to go first" i imagine thats my step 3 above? Thank you for your time with this, i really appreciate it! @AgastyaSandhuja
