The time for a CNAME record to take effect varies by DNS service provider. It is generally within half an hour. You can also check whether the CNAME record is in effect in the following ways:

cmd, press Enter, and enter the nslookup command to check whether the CNAME is effective. If the resolution result returned is the same as the CNAME of the domain name, the CNAME configuration is effective.
