My sub domains no longer work. When I try to get a wildcard CNAME (* @), after saving i get (*

I want simply to get something like

@ IN A

  • CNAME @

I don’t no why digitalOcean control-panel ignores my request

i get something like 1800 IN A * 1800 IN CNAME

The result is that all my sub-domain point to

My subdomains work as aliases to the main domain.

This is obviously not what I want!

My droplet is on nyc3. Is there a problem on this data center ?

I deleted and re-created the A and CNAME RECORD

A @ CNAME * @.

But the problem persists!

* CNAME @ means that points to, which is exactly what * 1800 IN CNAME does. Can you describe what you’re trying to accomplish if that’s not what you want?
