This site can’t be reached after adding custom domain

I’ve added a custom domain to my site (from bluehost). I’ve set the A record in bluehost to 104.198.14.52. I’ve also set the CNAME for www host record to carlrippon.com.

In netlify domains settings page the DNS appears to have resolved.

However, when I browse to http://carlrippon.com/ I get “This site can’t be reached. carlrippon.com’s server IP address could not be found.”

Any help would be appreciated

Hi @carlrip,

The A record is correct, but you want the CNAME to point to carlrippon.netlify.com. Those instructions are here: [Common Issue] Can I host my site on Netlify but keep my DNS at my domain registrar?

Thanks Laura, that’s done the trick!
