The domain settings seem somewhat limited right now, and I guess it will evolve. But is there any way to get wildcard subdomains working at this point?

Hi engborg,

At the moment we don’t support wildcard subdomains. I’ve taken note of this as a feature request.


+1 @meskinazi Any updates since October 6?

  • Yes, we now support custom wildcard domain.

    You must add the domain before you can use the wildcard. For example, if you want to add *, must be added to your app first.

    • How do I do this? I have tried adding an A Record with the hostname of * but this hasn’t worked. Am I missing something here?

    • With this configuration also not working
      A =>
      A => *
      CNAME => * ( Not Allowed )

      How’s your configuration @meskinazi ?

      • Wildcard CNAMEs are supported. When creating the record ensure the “Hostname” (other providers may call this “Record Name”) field is set to “*”. The “Is an Alias Of” (other providers may call this “Target”, or “Value”) should be set to your App’s full “” name.

        The example posted above looks like the fields may be backwards.
