5. Setting up your custom domain



I did everything this lesson tells me to do, but I get a different message in the github Settings page. Instead of a message saying my page is published on the GitHub Pages section, it says "Domain's DNS record could not be retrieved".

I'm trying to solve it by reading the troubleshooting domain pages in github help page, but it's getting complicated because it says I should contact the DNS provider and setup an ALIAS or A or ANAME, and not CNAME, as the Codecademy lesson tells me to. It's getting confusing and if I try doing it by myself I'm afraid it will get worse.

Any ideas are helpful, thanks in advance.

Step 5 github settings error


The lessons that follow actually set eveything correctly, now github publishes it successfully and I can see the website live.
