Settings up Custom Domain still showing 403 Forbidden

Site name: modest-fermi-c4aa6f.netlify.app
Custom Domain: stapletondesigns.com

I am trying to set up my custom domain for a website, and inside the domain settings, it is showing that it’s all working and the HTTPS is enabled. I do not want to use the Netlify DNS, but it’s showing the tag next to the domains (see image below).

However, when I head to the site, it still shows a 403 Forbidden message.

Am I forgetting something here?

hey there, i think it just needed some time.

you may want to try again from an incognito window.

here’s a little more info on why dns changes can really take up to 28 hours on occasion:

Ah, good old time it was. When I open an incognito window, I can see the site. Woohoo! Thank you for your help.
