should i add two dns servers for non-www and www servers

Posted January 10, 2015 4.6k views

i had my domain purchased in namecheap and dns records there are pointed to DigitalOcean(DO).

Now i added a DNS for www version ) in my DO panel.

I am using nginx server and also made changes in the file

Now Is it necessary to add other DNS for version) in DO panel.

because when i go to link it’s working fine but when i go to link chrome giving me this error

The server at can’t be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website’s name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.

There should be no need to add NS records in your DigitalOcean DNS zone, you can just change your A record for your non-www version and add a CNAME record for your www version to point to your non-www version.
