7. Head over to your DNS provider (the website that controls your domain name) and add a CNAME record where the hostname is @ and the corresponding value is hashnode.network. We'll automatically provision an SSL certificate for you when you visit your blog for the first time.


If you are using something like Cloudflare, please bypass it for this domain.


💡 PS: It's not recommended to use CNAME record at the root level. However, please make sure your DNS provider supports CNAME flattening if you want to do it. If you are still unable to add CNAME at root, you can add an A record at the root whose value is 76.76.21.21.

9. "You're all set". Congrats! You've successfully created a blog. We’ll scan for your domain name and provision an SSL certificate automatically for free. Usually, DNS propagation happens quickly. However, it may take up to 24 hours in the worst case.
