Firebase Hosting, sub domain redirect

Posted May 5, 2016 5.9k views
Nginx DNS

Im trying to set up a CNAME record so the sub-domain app.mysite.com points to firebase website where they do the hosting of my app and all the other sub-domains reaming working on the droplet as usual, my DNS settings are as fallow:
dns image

And firebase instructions are as fallow:
CongoDesk Instructions

When I visit the url for the CNAME I set up for Firebase I get the nginx welcome screen from my serve nginx

Does any one see a problem with the DNS settings, it has been days since I made the change so it is not a propagation issue.

Hi @pgiani! I can see that the URL is loading properly now. I’m assuming you’ve managed to set up the DNS record correctly?

If anyone else is having a similar issue, the CNAME record should be followed by a trailing dot. For example, app.domain.com.. Otherwise, the domain name will be appended to the hostname, making it invalid: app.domain.com.domain.com.
