My domain is registered through Homestaed. I use Weebly to build my website. I recently tried to edit my website on Weebly and when I went to publish it, I got the message "It appears that your domain is not properly setup to display your website. Please follow the domain setup instructions domain setup nstructionsdomain setup instructions, or if you already have, allow up to 48 hours for the DNS changes to propagate."

The domain setup instructions are:

1.         Log in to your domain's control panel

2.         Locate the area to change your domain's DNS settings

3.         Create 2 A-Records to point to Weebly's IP address

A-Record         Host    Points to

#1        The root of your domain (usually identified by a @ or * symbol)     XXX.XX.XXX.XX (DELETED BY ME)

#2        www   XXX.XX.XXX.XX (DELETED BY ME)

When I log in to Homestead, and click on "Advanced DNS settings", I get the message "Sorry, you cannot edit your advanced DNS settings for this domain because you have altered your default nameservers. If you wish to edit your advanced DNS settings, please reset your nameservers to the default Homestead nameservers first."

Now what do I do?

This is because your nameservers are going through Cloudflare, so you would need to log into your Cloudflare account and update the DNS there.
