Domain Management and Redirect

Posted May 31, 2021 138 views

Greetings all.

I have a domain for my research lab which I’ll be hanging a few things off of as subdomains (mattermost, wiki.js, etc). However, I need the apex domain to redirect to the institutional doamain for the lab. Is there a way to redirect the apex domain to a non-digital ocean managed domain while using digital ocean to manage subdomains?

Cheers.

The problem is that the digital ocean networking tools only lets you set up a CNAME that redirects from a DO managed domain to a sub domain (or vice versa). Doesn’t let you redirect to a completely different domain…unless I’m missing something
