How to change root entry to CNAME for github pages?
I am trying to move from NameCheap to DigitalOcean. My DNS is amirraminfar.com. Currently, in NameCheap I have amirraminfar.com setup as a CNAME to amir20.github.io.
$ dig amirraminfar.com ;; ANSWER SECTION: amirraminfar.com. 1587 IN CNAME amir20.github.io.
When trying to do the same thing in DigitalOcean, I cannot change amirraminfar.com to CNAME because @ seems to be invalid.
Is this a known problem? Perhaps, it is not possible to setup a root as CNAME but then why is it working on NameCheap.
