Issues connecting domain via dreamhost


I just signed up for Ghost Pro and having issues connecting domain via Dreamhost.
I’ve setup a CNAME for a root domain which is
Here are the records I’ve created:

NAME - www
Type - CNAME
Value - (that’s what the ‘Set up your CNAME’ recommended)

It seems to have propagated but I’m receiving an error message via Ghost Admin/settings;

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for your help
