How can I get a DNS sub domain to a different NGINX server without https?
I have followed the How to set up and test dns subdomains tutorial in order to redirect a subdomain to a nginx test server.
This tutorial is outdated and the panel looks somewhat different now.
My zone file looks like this:
geolytix.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.geolytix.com. 1472841549 10800 3600 604800 1800
geolytix.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com.
geolytix.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com.
geolytix.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com.
*.www.geolytix.com. 1800 IN CNAME www.geolytix.com.
*.ngx.geolytix.com. 1800 IN CNAME ngx.geolytix.com.
geolytix.com. 1800 IN A 18.104.22.168
www.geolytix.com. 1800 IN A 22.214.171.124
ngx.geolytix.com. 1800 IN A 126.96.36.199
When I test the host ngx.geolytix.com I get the right address returned. But when I put the address in the browser I get a redirect to https://ngx.geolytix.com.
I have no clue why this is happening?
