I’m playing around with using the App platform for a static website I have on a droplet.

everything is fine, except that once I added my domain to the new app, I noticed the dns entries in DO’s dns editor has duplicates for the A & AAAA records. seams like it added the same ips twice.

Just wanted to see if this was intentional or not as it seems like there just be 2 A and two AAAA records.

Thanks

For redundancy your service is served on at least two IPv4 and two IPv6 addresses. The addresses often have similar prefixes and suffixes, but the second to last octet is different. For example, the addresses might be 10.0.2.0 and 10.0.3.0 (NOTE: these are non-public addresses for example only). This is an implementation detail of the system and may change in the future.

  • I see that there are two different ips for both A & AAAA but I see duplicates for that, my dns setup looks like the following:

    A:
    mydomain.com 10.0.0.1
    mydomain.com 10.0.0.2
    mydomain.com 10.0.0.1
    mydomain.com 10.0.0.2

    AAAA:
    mydomain.com 1234:5678::9000:a11e
    mydomain.com 1234:5678::9000:a12e
    mydomain.com 1234:5678::9000:a11e
    mydomain.com 1234:5678::9000:a12e

    it’s kinda odd to have the duplicates like that. Should I contact DO Support about this? It seems like I can’t delete any of these, I already tried.

    Should I not worry about it.
