Silly me. There's a typo in the value field in the image, use hashnode.network




That wasn't hard. Now, let's head back to Hashnode and update your settings.

  • Go to your Hashnode dashboard Domain section

That's all. Easy breezy!

Note that DNS propagation may take within 24 hours, or less. Hit refresh on your new subdomain to check
