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

October 10, 2013 3.6k views
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 Pieter,

have a look at this: http://demo.umlg.org.umlg.org

simply set your subdomain's DNS record to
A demo 162.243.10.108

Assuming you're using DigitalOcean's DNS Manager, demo.umlg.org can work as well; so long as you add a dot at the end, i.e. demo.umlg.org.. See How To Set Up a Host Name with DigitalOcean.

By only specifying demo, DigitalOcean's DNS Manager appends .umlg.org. automatically.
Hi,

Yes I am using DigitalOcean's DNS Manager. I specified just demo now and all is well.
Thanks for the support.
