IP adress points to my subdomain

  • Posted January 15, 2015

Hello there,

I’ve set up a LAMP server on an CentOS VPS, created DNS records in DigitalOcean panel as instructed by the tutorials. Everything works fine on the main domain name and sub domain.

However, if I type my IP to address bar of browser, it serves me my subdomain, not the main domain.

in my ZONE file are these records -

@ IN A asdf IN A www IN CNAME

thank you


Yes, I do - is it bad? “asdf” is subdomain and I though it’s better to have “A” record instead of CNAME for subdomains. But maybe I did something different than it actually should be… ?

You have two A records for the same domain? Am I interpreting your zone file incorrectly, or did you intend ‘asdf’ to be a subdomain using a CNAME instead?
