What everyone's up to

Finally, I resolved this issue. Phew. I almost migrate to another hosting. Haha

Adding a custom DNS record to a fully hosted website is unlikely to happen so I decided to reg. transfer my domain to Google Domains. I was able to set up a custom domain for my Polywork profile and DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN showed up.

I tried searching for a solution from the web but none was helpful. I tried the support from DreamHost but only led me to their Knowledge Base. But today, I finally had a way to chat with a Support Agent.

Thanks to Marlon from the DreamHost Tech Support, he walked me through it.

Because I did the reg. transfer my domain from DreamHost to Google Domains, I am using G.D's nameservers. So I needed to add the A records that point to my website.

Things we encounter when we enter a rabbit hole. lol

And oh, here's my custom domain for my Polywork profile:

I'm in blank space. 😆

I am having a DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN problem with my website/blog,, after I set up my custom domain.

Where did I go wrong? haha
