Subdomain setup with DreamHost


I am unable to setup the custom domain on a subdomain. I have the main domain at The subdomain is

I setup the subdomain records as specified, however, I have not (and I am not able to) change anything about the main domain records.

It is still showing that the CNMAE record can’t propagate and they are not linking.

Can you help me figure out what am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

You have orders.orders in your custom records. Shouldn’t that just be orders?

I shared the wrong screenshot, it is actually orders. My apologies!

Okay, what are the error messages that you see when you click on the red info icons?

“Record not found. It can take up to 24 hours for DNS changes to take effect, so please check again later.”

But it has been three days already.

Okay. definitely doesn’t resolve, so that indicates an issue on the Dreamhost side.

From what you’ve shown, it looks to me that it’s correctly configured. I think you may need to reach out to Dreamhost support :man_shrugging:

Thank for the help Darren. I reached out to them and they fixed it. It was that when I follow the instructions and I copy orders and post it there, it actually create it as double orders.orders. Which was not visible to me (was visible on one of the screenshot).

So anyway, they removed that and it got fixed.
