Question

how can I map two subdomains to two droplets (two different IP addresses)?

  • Posted July 25, 2013

hi

I own a domain name, let’s call it domain.com

I want to map two subdomains of it to two DigitalOcean droplets (let’s say with IP’s 1.1.1.1 and 2.2.2.2), as in:

sub1.domain.com -> 1.1.1.1 sub2.domain.com -> 2.2.2.2

I’ve tried creating two ‘A’ records: sub1 1.1.1.1 sub2 2.2.2.2

but it has not worked. pinging sub1.domain.com and sub2.domain.com hits the same IP 1.1.1.1

any help appreciated

cheers

Francisco

@chuddy17: Simply point an A record on whatever DNS platform you are using to your droplet’s IP address.

I do have a similar problem, I wand to assign a sub domain name to a different IP address, I am currently using a hosted service. Please, how can I achieve this? <br> <br>Benjamin

Reason? load balancing?

actually, I take the question back, that worked :) <br> <br>it may have been a problem with not flushing correctly my dns cache
