Hi all, I created a DNS record for a client domain mydomain.com earlier (about 4 hours ago). The base domain is now public, but all of the sub-domains remain unpingable and unreachable in a browser. OK, it’s early days, but I’m curious as to why the base domain has propagated but the sub-domains haven’t. Here’s my zone file:
$TTL 1800 @ IN SOA NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. hostmaster.mydomain.com. ( 1404417443 ; last update: 2014-07-03 19:57:23 UTC 3600 ; refresh 900 ; retry 1209600 ; expire 1800 ; ttl ) IN NS NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. @ IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx mail.mydomain.com IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx webmail.mydomain.com IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx www.mydomain.com IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx m.mydomain.com IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Am I just being impatient?
Thoughts appreciated Cheers Mark
