Using own domain

I've got the cName record for www.brubro.com set to brubro.coffeecup.com. When I go to www.brubro.com I get the default page for sDrive saying its not set up yet. When I go to the control panel and try to set up own domain I'm told that my domain is not set up properly. I've tried from three different ISP's with same result so I'm assuming (possibly wrongly) that the change has fully propagated to all the name servers.
Would a few kind readers try it from your locations to see if you get the coffeecup error page or an old blog page? If it's not fully propagated I'll wait before turning in support ticket...
Thanks in advance, hope y'all found some eggs.

When did you do the migration? It can take a day to get through.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

About 20 hours ago, took 11 for domain to resolve to the coffecup site itself instead of the old blog. Was just wondering since it does successfully point to coffeecup it would seem to be ready.

I just tried the link, and I get your default page for sDrive.

Since the site brubro.coffeecup.com exists and loads, but www.brubro.com doesn't I suggest there may be a typo in the redirect.

I updated your site so that it resolves to www.brubro.com, but you have not setup a CNAME for just brubro.com, so only www.brubro.com will actually work for you.

Thanks Scott. What did I do wrong? The dashboard still says it is set up wrong. Must the brubro.com also redirect?

I bet you just entered brubro.com which is not a CNAME you setup yet. Only www.brubro.com is actually setup with a CNAME.

No I was using the www... Must have been a recalcitrant name server somewhere that didn't know "Resistance is futile."
Thanks for the help everyone.
