I have a domain from GoDaddy that I'm forwarding to a heroku app. I had it set up so that in my domain "settings", forwarding with masking was set up, forwarding to the heroku app URL. In my "A" record on GoDaddy, I had the host as
@ and pointing to
188.8.131.52 (GoDaddy's IP). I also have 2 CNAME records: One in which the host is
* pointing to
@, and another in which the host is
www pointing to
With this setup, everything was working fine. I wanted to try to have a naked URL redirect to my site (typing in the url without the "www" wouldn't bring you to my site), so I stupidly added an extra "A" record as specified by wwwizer. Of course, this broke everything. I immediately removed that extra "A" record so everything is set up as it initially was, but I'm being brought to a completely blank page, and am getting this error message in the console:
Refused to display [[[my heroku url]]] in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'SAMEORIGIN'.
My big screw up with the extra A record was about 10 hours ago. The folks at GoDaddy have told me it can take up to 48 hours for the DNS to update, and that the way I have it now (my original settings) is correct but I'm a little incredulous that it's taking this long, and worried that this is irreversible.
Is this really just a matter of the DNS taking a while to update, or have I permanently screwed things up?? Obviously I'm pretty new to this stuff, so any and all input or advice is tremendously appreciated!!
