I want to prefix this by mentioning that I’m very new to development, and this is a “learning project” for me, so my question might be dumb.
I’m currently using the app platform to host a Flask website. I have a custom domain linked via a flattened CNAME record. I’ve added the subdomain for api.website.com via another CNAME record.
Usually, with Flask, I would do the following to load the root page for a subdomain:
@app.route('/', subdomain="api") def api_load(): return render_template("page.html")
When visiting the site using the subdomain, flask does not acknowledge it, instead just displaying the default root page.
I think that my issue is being caused by using a CNAME record, however, I can’t reliably see a way to use an A record because I can’t find a static IP for my app.
The only other solution I can see is to create another separate app, and just redirect the subdomain to that instead, but this would double my costs and I’m not eager to do that.
Am I missing something, or is this feature simply not available on the apps platform?
Thanks in advance for your time.
