Hi, Andrius

I have the same problem.
I want to use my own domain with 000webhost.

Domain is vyazanie.us, registered at Uniregistry.
I followed the Uniregistry FAQ and created CNAME record pointed www.vyazanie.us to vyazanieus.000webhostapp.com
But when I'm saving it at https://www.000webhost.com/members/website/vyazanieus/domain
I get error message: domain CNAME must be pointed webhostapp.

What am I doing wrong?

you just need to wait until dns propagation is compete. try again in a few hours

It is very easy but for that you should check that you have to right to make custom CNAME if you have then just click on the custom CNAME. Create as per you requirements and most of the website took 24 to 48 hours to propagate that so wait till then.

Just create a new CNAME from domain control panel, point to your 000webhost account and that's it.

Also, you have to wait for the CNAME update in the domain name server to take effect.
