I purchased a domain name (e.g., www.mydomain.com) from the domain.com and pointed my domain to webapp-xxxxxxx.pythonanywhere.com.
I added a DNS record 'on domain.com' as per the instruction in a way that CNAME for the 'Record' field, www for the 'Name' field, and webapp-xxxxxxx.pythonanywhere.com for the 'Content' field. I also set up a Domain pointer on "domain.com" in a way that "URL standard" for the Pointer Type field and "http://www.mydomain.com" for the "Directory" field, but it should have nothing to do with this error I'm getting on pythonanywhere at the moment.
I reloaded my domain (www.mydomain.com) but am still getting the error message - "There is a problem with your domain name configuration. Take a look at....". I've waited longer than a day for DNS to propagate, but it's not still working.
Plus, when I click on my custom domain name link on the pythonanywhere web app page, I'm directed to some weird page that shows the same interface as "ns1.domaincom-default.domainparkingserver.net", which is one of the "Nameserver" on domain.com.
Could you please let me know what could be the problem here?
