    Important: Domains can take anywhere from 24-48 hours to populate and sometimes up to 72 hours, depending on your provider. Some providers like GoDaddy and Google Domains can populate their DNS as quickly as 15 min to 1 hour.

1. Create your CNAME record

Access your domain's DNS settings in your domain registrar's or DNS host's dashboard.

IMPORTANT : We currently DO NOT support proxied domains. You will need to deactivate it.

Add a CNAME record

For example :

Some DNS hosting services prefer that you set the full domain ( as the host instead of story. We recommend that you check the "Adding a CNAME record" documentation of your DNS host.

Every DNS host has their own way of updating DNS settings. We recommend that you read the help documentation of your DNS host, also do not hesitate to contact their support for help with their interface and settings.
