Question

Make domain url lead to subdomain

I have bought a domain domain.com from GoDaddy. In GoDaddy, I have customised DigitalOcean as name servers; in DNS of DigitalOcean, I have added the following records:

| | | ------------- | ------------- | ------------- | A | @ | 178.62.x.y CNAME | sub | domain.com CNAME | www.sub | domain.com

As a result, when I type sub.domain.com and www.sub.domain.com in a browser, they both lead to sub.domain.com, which is what I want.

Currently domain.com and www.domain.com lead to the default site of my server. However, I also want them to lead to sub.domain.com.

Does anyone know what to do to make this happen?

Thank you

Yes, just change your A record with the name sub.domain.com to 178.62.x.y Then create the CNAME so domain.com will get redirected to sub. domain.com and that will redirected to your servers ip

I don’t get your setup, because now you redirect sub.domain.com to domain.com and you want to redirect domain.com to sub.domain.com ? But anyway, if you want domain.com to sub.domain.com just use a cname for it and it will work. Name: domain.com Hostname: sub.domain.com
