Good Day

I am trying to run our Sharepoint Public site from a local domain. I added the CNAME in the DNS as requested from the site.

DNS Settings
DNS Settings for www.cgrp.co.za domain
DNS Information for domain.
DNS Setup as ons Sharepoint site
Sharepoint Domain Info
Sharepoint Domain info
When I try to login via http://cgrp.co.za the browser jumps between a secure and non secure site and eventually ends up at the Office 365 Login screen.

Jumps via sites
Jumps via secure and non secure site
Here is the site details.
Title Website
Web Site Address https://cavalierfoods-public.sharepoint.com/ 
Public Web Site Address http://cgrp.co.za/ 

What I do notice is that when you go to www.cgrp.co.za the site is resolved but not when you use http://cgrp.co.za.

Should the CNAME point to www or http?

The www record should be as it is, CNAME pointing to cavalierfoods.sharepoint.com.

Go to the O365 admin portal, Domains and add WWW.cgrp.co.za. It should not ask you to verify the ownership as cgrp.co.za is already added. Set the Domain Purpose to SharePoint. Set the public website in SharePoint admin portal to http://WWW.cgrp.co.za, and you should be fine.
