Hm; I haven't actually bought a domain through netlify before (I buy them outside of netlify and setup DNS separately), so I'm not 100% sure what might be happening, but I have a few ideas:
Can you access the site directly with the "your-app.netlify.com" address? (if not, then it's not deployed correctly, so changing DNS stuff won't do anything)
Can you access the domain part of netlify and check to see if the domain is "Verified"? (it turns green with no warning symbol)
If the dns records are there and the site is working directly, it's possible it's a DNS cache issue - though 5 hours is usually enough in my experience for it to clear and fix itself, so that doesn't sound like it...
Does that help at all?
Here's a repo for the site github.com/NhlanhlaHasane/Nhlanhla...
The thing is i developed the site using vscode and then push my commits to its repo on github, and i fetched from github to netlify. Which deployed without any error. "My-app.netflify.com" is the one that's giving me the "Page Not Found Looks like you've followed a broken link or entered a URL that doesn't exist on this site." error and when i used my registered domain it want to DNS configuration. " to set up https. It's rollcoaster ride to be honest/
ah, if the direct netlify link doesn't work, then it's not a DNS issue - something went wrong with deploying your site. Under "deploys", make sure there is at least one successful build, and then click that link directly to see if it's working.
Hope you can figure it out! (sorry, can't help much if it's a deploy issue... keep trying/waiting for netlify support I suppose).
