Potential issue with setting up wildcard / subdomains

Hi all,

Like some blogging services my app needs customers to create subdomains which I would like to secure with SSL.

I have tried to set this up following the instructions but I Render still says “DNS update needed”. When I follow the instructions for adding my normal domain it works quickly and had no issues.

My domain is with Namecheap.

I am pretty new to this kind of thing so there is a chance there is something you might assume that I would know that could be causing issues.

It looks like one of the CNAME records may be misconfigured. I’ll follow up via email.
