How to Speed up the Domain Propagation Process (optional)

If you have followed the tutorial video above, and after a couple of hours or days the custom domain feature is not active yet, please take the following steps. Precondition

  • You are required to use the Cloudflare service
  • Domains have pointed perfectly on Cloudflare before

The reasons you must use Cloudflare are as follows: Not all DNS managers are good. So, if you’ve done everything in the tutorial but the domain still not working, it means that your DNS Manager needs improvement. We use Cloudflare because it is better and free. crucial notes: This method is NOT for CPanel users In the video above, we set the TTL to be 7200 seconds (See red box)

If you have set a TTL in 7200 or 2 minutes, please change it to Auto.
