Re: Tumblr not recognising domain

Hi @ellouiseh,

If you've only recently made the DNS update, you'll need to allow 24-48 hours for the domain to propagate globally. That's not just for your visitor's ISPs to update their data, but Tumblr's as well, so they can verify your domain.


You can also check the instructions in this link (3rd party guide) to see if you have completed any necessary setup, or settings, on the Tumblr side of things.
