Question

Creating a subdomain. Getting Error about 3 segments in Domain Name. Any help?

  • Posted August 15, 2013

Hi, first post.

I am trying to get a subdomain of forum.ericmeerstra.ca going. I added it to my digital ocean account yesterday. If I do a “whois forum.ericmeerstra.ca”, I get the following error.

Error code: 10122 ErrorMessage: The domain name provided has 3 segments. A segment is the group of characters between the dots in a domain name. Domain names with 3 segments cannot be registered.

Anyone got any ideas? There is nothing on google for this at all. Did I do something ridiculously stupid?

Awesome! :]

I was helped by the support team. :) <br>My mistake was that I created the ‘A’ as forum.ericmeerstra.ca <br> <br>This resolved to forum.ericmeerstra.ca.ericmeerstra.ca <br>This is why I was getting the error of having to many things in between the forum and the last ‘.ca’ <br> <br>Good work support! :)

The whois command works for ericmeerstra.ca <br>Is it supposed to work on subdomains? Also, I added the subdomain 2 days ago, so I don’t think its a problem of it not propagating around yet.
