Other Information


I’ve been recently trying to configure a custom domain for gitbook. But, every time I set it up, it always freezes in “Your domain status is pending” in the provided image is the error message and how takes too long to load.

As I mentioned… :sweat_smile:

Normally, I don’t think you’d have to, but try removing and adding them again and wait for some hours afterwards for the changes to be reflected.
