My CNAME don't work but why?
I have a free domain (ownhosting.tk). The A Record work perfectly.I add a CNAME for my mail server (mail.ownhosting.tk) but it doesn’t work. i try to open the cmd and type ping mail.ownhosting.tk but it says : “Host Not Found mail.ownhosting.tk etc…”
What I can do?
This is my zone file:
ownhosting.tk. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.ownhosting.tk. 1440501919 10800 3600 604800 1800
ownhosting.tk. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com.

ownhosting.tk. 1800 IN A 18.104.22.168
