RESOLVED: DNS - how long does it take?


#1

I changed the DNS of my domain to point to a Webflow hosting plan. It's been a couple of hours and on some computers I still see the files I have hosted on godaddy's servers,
However on some computers it is showing the new Webflow hosted site. To completely see the Webflow site do I need to remove the files on the godaddy server?

Webflow shows a green check box saying everything is named correctly on the DNS.

Please help guys.

Anyone can help, I am just referencing people I know on here below:

Ok Update: when I put a www. Infront of the URL it works fine. But when I use website.com with no www. It shows the go daddy files.. What option in the DNS do I change for the website.com to show correctly without the www. ?


#3

Update: I read the instructions and it says to add 2 @ A(Host) name severs but godady will only let me add one of them?

Post a screenshot of the dns settings.

You have two conflicting root (@) A records. You should only have one. Remove the second one.

Also, remove all the four nameservers. The A record is already redirecting to webflow servers.


#7

On the Webflow instructions it states to have two of those though?


#8


It seems to work on the computer, but not on mobile when you two not use www.

Also post a screenshot of the hosting tab in the website settings.

I don't see why man? It's set to my home URL and it's working on desktop.

@seank I also like to add both the www. and without www. address of the site as you can see here. That way both addresses work just fine. :smile:

As Waldo has shown, you should configure your CNAME records as above

I've seen DNS records propagate anywhere from 5 minutes to 48 hours - Check here

A record points to Webflow servers - it is a reference to a server for CNAME records to consume
CNAME record points to A record - it is the URL that users will type in their browser.

In your Domain Name Registrar portal (GoDaddy in your case)

  1. Configure the A record to point to Webflow's IP Address(s)
  2. You will then need to configure 2 CNAME records - yourwebsitename.com AND www.yourwebsitename.com, these must point to the A record.

Thank you everyone. Inserting the website.com in Webflow worked!
