Question

Adding common misspellings as CNAME Record

How do I add common misspellings of my domain as CNAME records using DO’s DNS?

When adding a CNAME with DO it only asks for the name and appending .mydomain to the end.

So I end up with:

mydomain.com 1800 IN A a.b.c.d misspelling.mydomain.com 1800 IN CNAME mydomain.com

When I need:

misspelling.com 1800 IN CNAME mydomain.com

Thanks, I didnt think to add the othet domains with their own zone files.

Waait. Do you own every single first level “misspelled” domain name? If yes, add them to your DNS panel and point them with a CNAME record to the correct domain name.

I added the misspellings to DO’s name servers. Then added a cname record as:

*.misspelling.com. 1800 IN CNAME mydomain.com.

So, you are pointing your registered misspelled domains to the DO nameserver, correct?
