Getting "Fetching the page failed because the fetcher cannot resolve the address." when validating www. but not bare domain


#1

For whatever reason the www. version of the domain name to our website (whether pointing as a CNAME to the @'s A record or just pointing directly at the server’s IP) produces a “Fetching the page failed because the fetcher cannot resolve the address.” error when it works just fine for the bare domain name. Not really sure if there should be something we do in the DNS settings or in the Apache server but we’re at a loss at this point.

The cards work on the bare domain and were validated as such so it’s for sure not an issue of the meta tags.

Looks like we just needed to wait for the DNS settings to propagate on Twitter’s end. Pointing the www. domain to the IP of the server worked like a charm.
