I am trying to forward my domain (savoringsurprises.com) to my Etsy shop (savoringsurprises.etsy.com). Every time that I click on my link, I get this error:
Your Internet access is blocked
Firewall or antivirus software may have blocked the connection.
And this is not only for my computer, because I had a company email me saying that my redirect isn't working. I have tried to set up a forwarding to https://www.etsy.com/shop/savoringsurprises, with a permanent redirect and forwarding only, with the update DNS and nameservers box checked. However, after waiting several days, my domain still will not forward.
You can actually point a domain to an etsy shop without the need for forwarding.
Remove forwarding, delete the A record for host @ and CNAME record for host www. Then create these records.
Points to: 188.8.131.52
Points to: patternbyetsy.com
Make sure this is the only A record for host @ and the only CNAME for host www. Then you'll also need to add the domain to your store in the Pattern Dashboard.
I am sorry, I was unaware there's a difference. I am not duplicating the error as described, though I wonder if you can determine some common denominator between those who are. You can also post a screenshot of your DNS records to get another set of eyes to help review.
