"This site is under development" issue only with custom domain

I’ve recently hosted my website georgebaaklini.com using netlify however, I can only access my website using the domain given to me by netlify which is georgebaaklini.netlify.app because when using my own domain, I get the error that my site is under development with a blank white screen. What is odd is that sometimes my domain seems to be working but the majority of the time it isn’t.

Your issue seems to be related to domain propagation or misconfiguration. Here’s a short troubleshooting guide:

  1. Wait: Domain changes can take 24-48 hours to propagate.
  2. DNS Settings: Ensure your domain’s DNS records correctly point to Netlify.
  3. Netlify Settings: In your Netlify dashboard, verify your custom domain is correctly linked.
  4. Clear Browser Cache: Old cached data might display your site incorrectly.
  5. Netlify Deploy: Check if the site deploys without errors in Netlify’s logs.
  6. Contact Netlify Support: If the issue persists, reach out to Netlify support.
