It's been a couple days and I still get the same error when trying to switch to "Use Your Own Domain". Any ideas?
The issue you have is you setup the CNAME incorrectly. This is what you have setup:
www.hlslutheran.com. 85806 IN CNAME http://hlslutheran.coffeecup.com.
You cannot use http:// in a CNAME. It should look just like this:
www.hlslutheran.com. 85806 IN CNAME hlslutheran.coffeecup.com
Try fixing that in your domain manager and see if that helps.
Thanks Scott. I made the change but am still getting the error. I will try later today or tomorrow to see if it is a timing problem.
We now have to wait again for the DNS to filter through the 'Net.
Scott, I am trying to do this too for my brother from GoDaddy....they want the IP addy: only numbers, not the written web addy...so S-Drive needs to provide us with the numerical IP address...at least that is what I need for Go Daddy....
You do not use IP Addresses when setting up a CNAME. Please see these instructions:

I believe the inst for GD in the S-Drive help article, has us trying to change the HOST not CName and it is the host section looking for IP #
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
