[PHP][Web Apps] CNAME record not found for subdomain RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 Wordpress Web Apps on Azure: and - I've set up a custom domain to the first site without any problems:

    For the second Web App I would like it as a subdomain, so pointing to

    I've set up the CNAME for the subdomain as follows: - -

    Also an A Record: - *IP ADDRESS*

    After all of this and over 30 hours ago and Azure is still not verifying the domain, with the error:

    "A CNAME record pointing from to was not found. Alternative record to was not found either."

    I've followed this tutorial to the tee:

    What am I doing wrong? Do I not need the A record? Thanks for any help.

  • I'm an idiot, I forgot I was using Cloudflare and had to do the DNS on there instead of Hostgator :/ It all works now! :)
