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

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

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

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