Need to create a subdomain pointing to external application

Hi, I have a website that is hosted on Netlify and using a custom domain DNS is managed by Netlify DNS.

There is also a CMS application hoted on Digital Ocean which I want to use on a subdomain like, based on the documentation, I have created a CNAME record pointing to Digital Ocean’s IP address but unfortunately it’s been more than 20 hours and I still cannot access the CMS application which makes me beleive that there is some configuration that I may have done wrong.

Any help is appreciated.

Hey @piyush,

It sounds like you’re trying to proxy from DO to Netlify. You should find these steps useful. Propagation can take a little while!
