Question

Can your DNS control panel be used for heroku?

Im looking to transfer my domain over to use your control panel for DNS. Does it support the ability for subdomain redirection or CNAME functionality at the apex?

I’m having no luck with setting up a free Heroku server for a small site with Heart Internet and their support is terrible.

You think that’s a good solution? “Just redirect”

This is so unprofessional and annoying. Can’t believe you guys didn’t decide to solve this issue in last couple of years…

If your DNS provider does not support such a record-type, and you are unable to switch to one that does, you will need to use subdomain redirection to send root domain requests to your app on Heroku. <br> <br>We do not support ALIAS/ANAME records, so you will have to configure your webserver to redirect from yourdomain.com to www.yourdomain.com.

Why go with a third-party provider? Isn’t it as simple as having your web server (e.g., Nginx or Apache) do a 301 redirect?
