My custom free subdomain is glitched

My website ( seems to be linked to Replit but when I run my Repl, it still says to run the Repl. Can someone tell me why ?

By the way, I linked the domain name with an A record.
I found the IP of the Repl and linked it to my free subdomain provider (FreeDNS).

I don’t believe replit supports linking that way, IIRC you’re supposed to link with a CNAME or TXT record?


Yep, as @Firepup650 said Replit only allows CNAME records for domain linking.

This is because the IPs you’d put in A records are constantly changing, but also that the CNAME record helps the Replit proxy know what Repl you wanna connect to.
