Problem description: My custom subdomains are not linking after 2 or more days. I have been using 내도메인.한국 for my subdomain provider and it worked 2 times before and now it doesn’t work. (NOTE: The provider doesn’t allow CNAMEs and TXT records to be added together.)
CUSTOM DOMAIN: cry.n-e.kr
Expected behavior: After following instructions, the custom domain should work after 48 hours.
Actual behavior: After following instructions, it’s stuck on the linking process after 48 hours and only shows this error when visiting the custom domain: “Run this Repl to see the results here.”
@sxh welcome to the forums!
This is a known problem that the staff are currently trying to fix. Please be patient while the fix it. Hope you have a good day
Custom domains worked fine for me today when using CloudFlare. Maybe try using CloudFlare as your DNS service (it’s free and you can link with your existing domain!). Replit also recommended it on their post talking about this issue.

Pretty sure cloudflare doesn’t accept subdomains. Tried it a while ago. Thanks for the suggestion, though! The thought counts.
Since when? You can assign whole nameservers (
NS record) to your subdomains, why wouldn’t you be able to assign a
TXT record to it?

And cry.n-e.kr is a subdomain, not really a domain. (like n-e.kr)
You need to set nameservers to cloudflare and then you can do subdomains in cloudflare

The problem still exists even when
status.replit.com says its okay.
I have 2 repls still not linking. Did I hit the limit or something?
Please refer to our official response on this issue here:
We have concluded that: DNS services that do not allow TXT records alongside CNAME records, or that add A records instead of solely a CNAME record, are not compatible with Replit. We are working on updating our documentation to reflect this limitation, and we are also investigating long-term solutions to this issue.
Here are some additional details about the compatibility issues with some DNS services:
TXT records are used to add additional information to a domain name, such as security recor…

So it’s like a security measure to see if the domain is really mine or not. I understand but my last question is why did it work before? I did this before with FreeDNS, x10Hosting, and InfinityFree.
