I've pointed it in DNS (godaddy), but my site settings are still telling me that it is not pointed correctly

I pointed my domain to yola. I purchased silver. I created the site. Why does it keep telling me that its not pointed here so I cannot use it (press the next button). Even when I type the site's name in the url, the page I get says that it is pointed here

Hello Roland,

Can you just check that you have added 1 A record and 1 CNAME to the GoDaddy DNS management system and the IP address is pointing to Yola's servers.

The other aspect is that it can take several hours to propagate through (up to 48 hours) but generally quicker than this.

Ok, Guess it just took a while. I published it as a subdomain, then redirected it. Then after about an hour it showed up. Thanks for your quick response
