Question

dns, domain name point to github pages and subdomain to droplet not working

I have added two A records via the control panel.

domain = umlg.org

A @ 204.232.175.78 (github pages ip) A demo.umlg.org 162.243.10.108 (droplet)

I have waited more than 24 hours but demo.umlg.org domain is not working. Can not ping it or do a nslookup on it.

Is something wrong with how I have set up the 2 domains?

Thanks Pieter

Hi, <br> <br>Yes I am using DigitalOcean’s DNS Manager. I specified just demo now and all is well. <br>Thanks for the support.

Assuming you’re using DigitalOcean’s DNS Manager, <code>demo.umlg.org</code> can work as well; so long as you add a dot at the end, i.e. <code>demo.umlg.org.</code>. <i>See</i> <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean”>How To Set Up a Host Name with DigitalOcean</a>. <br> <br>By only specifying <code>demo</code>, DigitalOcean’s DNS Manager appends <code>.umlg.org.</code> automatically.

Ha, how about that. <br>Thanks
