Hi, @kilinkis, when you add a domain to Netlify both the www subdomain and the apex/root domain are both linked to the site.
(This only happens for the apex/root and
www subdomain domain names. If you add
example.kilinkis.me for example, only that one domain would be added.)
So, the error is happening because the
www subdomain (meaning
www.kilinkis.me) doesn’t have a DNS record for it.
It is very common for DNS services to not support CNAMEs for apex/root domains. Using the IP address
188.8.131.52 for the apex/root domain (
kilinkis.me) is correct.
www subdomain, your DNS will almost certainly support a CNAME record. Using the CNAME is important because this is what allows your site to be hosted on CDN nodes spread geographically around the world so that visitors visit a node closest to them.
This is the record which already exists:
kilinkis.me. 14400 IN A 184.108.40.206
This is the record still needed:
www.kilinkis.me. 1800 IN CNAME kilinkisme.netlify.com.
Please add the CNAME record for the
www subdomain pointing to
kilinkisme.netlify.com. You can confirm if that record is working (or not) using the DNS lookup below:
Once it is working, you will be able to add an automatic SSL certificate with the “Verify DNS configuration” and/or “Renew certificate” buttons found here.
If there are other questions, we are happy to assist.
