Why are the CNAME Records Not Propagating?

Why are the CNAME Records Not Propagating?

When setting up CNAME records, it takes time for them to propagate. Typical time to propagate is a couple of hours, however, if they have not propagated within 24 hours, it means the CNAME record settings are incorrect. Enquire MAP polls the DNS settings for the domain that is looking for the records being set. To check to see if the records are set, utilize a tool such as NsLookup: Network Tools


If the records are set, you will see record in the listing. If they re not set, then you will have to review the settings in your DNS tool.  If you are using Cloudflare, here are a couple external links that may help to sort out propagation issues:

  1. Subdomain's CNAME record not propagating

  2. Setting up a CNAME record with CloudFlare
