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

  • Posted October 10, 2013

I have added two A records via the control panel.

domain =

A @ (github pages ip) A (droplet)

I have waited more than 24 hours but 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></code> can work as well; so long as you add a dot at the end, i.e. <code></code>. <i>See</i> <a href=“”>How To Set Up a Host Name with DigitalOcean</a>. <br> <br>By only specifying <code>demo</code>, DigitalOcean’s DNS Manager appends <code></code> automatically.

Ha, how about that. <br>Thanks

Hi Pieter, <br> <br>have a look at this: <br> <br>simply set your subdomain’s DNS record to <br>A demo <br> <br>
