Question

CNAME www not working with multiple domains on one droplet

Hi all, i am hosting two sites on my droplet (using Nginx). The one is my mothers Ghost blog, which works fine with and without a www. in front of the address.

My domain on the other hand doesn’t work so well. georgestefanis.com works fine but www.georgestefanis.com doesn’t. I can ping both addresses just fine though. i have added in my DNS configuration the following:

A @ 1.2.3.4 CNAME www @

Any ideas what am i doing wrong?

Adding to the nginx configuration the following seemed to do the trick: <br> <br>server_name georgestefanis.com www.georgestefanis.com;
