It is possible for DNS misconfiguration to cause slower load times This post gets into why and how we suggest setting up DNS if you’re not using Netlify DNS:
And indeed in this case, there does seem to be some DNS weirdness. When I run
host on the custom domain for the Netlify URL @fito shared, this is what I see:
% host www.fitofago.com
www.fitofago.com is an alias for fitofago.com.
fitofago.com has address 18.104.22.168
So www. is pointing to the apex domain, even though in the Netlify UI, the www. is set as the primary domain. There may be some looping happening because of that. Beyond that, the apex domain points to our load balancer in San Francisco. Together, this config means that you’re not getting any of the geo-routing capabilities of our CDN but it’s easily fixable by changing your CNAME record for www.fitofago.com to point to loving-jepsen-8afe7b.netlify.app (instead of to fitofago.com).
Please let us know if that helps or if you have any other questions on this!
