Hello, it seems that you have not pointed your domain correctly to Miraheze's servers. Please make sure to read https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Custom_domains and let us know when you have pointed your domain to us.

I tried to follow the directions and this is what I have (please see attached). Is this incorrect?

I contacted Google support, and they said I did it correctly, but there is a propagation period that could take up to 48 hours. Could you please try again later and let me know if it works?

@VonViddy Oh, so then you would like the domain to be 'www.wikibeats.net'?

I was hoping for wikibeats.net; I don't quite understand if the "www" is necessary these days. Whatever works.

Yeah, the issue is in order for you to do that you would have to use * or @ as a CNAME, and that's why I thought it wasn't pointed properly. So, if you do that as a CNAME that should work

Ok I added * and that worked. But Google won't allow @ because it says "CNAME for the root directory is not supported."

Yeah, unfortunately that doesn't work. So either you will have to use www, or you would need to point your nameservers to Miraheze if you want to only use 'wikibeats.net'

Ok, I set custom nameservers. I imagine there will be another propagation period before it can go through. Please let me know if this successfully allows just "wikibeats.net." Thank you.

Yes, that worked! You can now access your wiki at https://wikibeats.net
