A little more than 15 hours ago I changed my DNS in Namecheap to point to Netlify instead of Cloudflare. However, my domain seems to be having problems propagating and generating an SSL certificate.
I’ve run the following commands:
whois thepolyglotdeveloper.com whois www.thepolyglotdeveloper.com
Without the CNAME, I get the following result:
Name Server: dns1.p03.nsone.net Name Server: dns2.p03.nsone.net Name Server: dns3.p03.nsone.net Name Server: dns4.p03.nsone.net
This looks good, but when I use
WHOIS with the CNAME, I get the following:
nserver: A.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 188.8.131.52 2001:503:a83e:0:0:0:2:30 nserver: B.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 184.108.40.206 2001:503:231d:0:0:0:2:30 nserver: C.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 220.127.116.11 2001:503:83eb:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: D.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 18.104.22.168 2001:500:856e:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: E.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 22.214.171.124 2001:502:1ca1:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: F.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 126.96.36.199 2001:503:d414:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: G.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 188.8.131.52 2001:503:eea3:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: H.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 184.108.40.206 2001:502:8cc:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: I.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 220.127.116.11 2001:503:39c1:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: J.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 18.104.22.168 2001:502:7094:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: K.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 22.214.171.124 2001:503:d2d:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: L.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 126.96.36.199 2001:500:d937:0:0:0:0:30 nserver: M.GTLD-SERVERS.NET 188.8.131.52 2001:501:b1f9:0:0:0:0:30
That may be normal, I don’t know. I extend my testing, as recommended in the documentation. I run the following commands:
curl -s -v thepolyglotdeveloper.com curl -s -v www.thepolyglotdeveloper.com
Both commands come back with Netlify being the server, which I assume is good. I suspect if it wasn’t good, Cloudflare or DigitalOcean would have come back since I was using them prior.
Next, I execute the following commands:
dig thepolyglotdeveloper.com @dns1.p03.nsone.net dig thepolyglotdeveloper.com @dns2.p03.nsone.net dig thepolyglotdeveloper.com @dns3.p03.nsone.net dig thepolyglotdeveloper.com @dns4.p03.nsone.net
I get results back, but I’m not entirely sure what they mean, even after looking through the documentation. The IP addresses that come back are owned by Cloudflare and DigitalOcean. I don’t know if that is what Netlify uses behind the scenes, or if I’ve got another problem.
Inside my Netlify dashboard for my site, the primary domain and my domain redirect seem to be shuffling around the status “Check DNS Configuration”. By shuffle I mean, if I refresh the page throughout the day, the message alternates between the domains and sometimes even shows them as complete, however that isn’t truly the case.
When it comes to my SSL certificate, my alias seems to have received the certificate. This alias is a CNAME for my primary domain which is odd because I would have thought if my CNAME could get a certificate, why not the entire domain?
I’m at a loss here because my site has been non-functional for a long time, much longer than any domain I’ve ever transferred. I have no insight into if there is a problem or if it is just propagating slow.
Any help would be appreciated.
