Question

DNS configuration failed when i'm using digitalocean control-panel

  • Posted November 1, 2014

Hello,

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

I want simply to get something like

@ IN A 1.2.3.4

  • CNAME @

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

i get something like

mydomain.com. 1800 IN A 1.2.3.4 *.mydomain.com. 1800 IN CNAME mydomain.com.

The result is that all my sub-domain point to mydomain.com

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 @ 1.2.3.4 CNAME * @.

But the problem persists!

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