[Resolved] Previously working custom domains suddenly not working

while we’re in the thread a question about custom domains, is it possible to link directly to the glitch app, use the .glitch.me app if you’ve set up custom domains. I modified my already using fly.io config to use .glitch.me for my xkcd-printer project (https://xkcd-print.ascent.tk) and either it works or my network uses too much dns caching. However when I added openradio it didn’t work probaly because fly.io broke at that momment

I apologise for kinda bumping this but, after removing the domain (by emailing support), and I try to re-add the domain, it shows an unknown error occurred. Then, I reloaded the page and this time, it shows the domain is already connected. I need help ASAP. Without my domain, the website is nothing. Moreover, since the glitch support team is prolly sleeping so, idk what to do. Please help me :frowning:

They work Mon-Fri.

Glix, where are you when we need you…


In development.

Update: My custom domains are working again at the moment. No one touch anything! :slight_smile:


No, keep touching stuff. Mine doesn’t even Search.

My domains are still destroyed from the last one

also not working for me. well. guess we have to wait.

Oy, yes, custom domains are broken again. :sob:

Odd, it looked like a temporary solution was made:


You could Use ngrok to get a domain then use Cloudflare’s API to change the CNAME record when the app restarts.

I should make a library/cli app for that.


ngrok is on the slow side I think for web apps so it’ll work for low performance apps, but apps involving video uploading or large file uploading or games might not want to use this approach(my friend complained of lots of TPS lag when playing minecraft using ngrok)

When will this be solved?! :persevere:

depends on how fast communication between fly.io and the glitch team is. They could be getting replies every hour or every 6 hours or even every day due to timezones.


My domains (carcraftz.dev and niny.io) seem to be working so I assumed the issue was fixed.

It seems the fly team made some sort of temporary fix, however, it may not have impacted all custom domains or all servers.



Custom domains are working again.

As @RiversideRocks stated, fly has made a temporary fix. We will be discussing a longterm solution with them this week.
