# Troubleshooting

Here's a list of common issues you might encounter and their solutions.

When adding your domain name we will check whether it is pointing to our infrastructure and show this error if not.

The most common issue is a misconfiguration, please ensure the domain is properly setup by contacting your domain provider, or reach us at: [email protected].
