Question

Subdomain unavailable after connecting through Digital Ocean

Hi there, I am having some issues with subdomains. I have deployed an app on Digital Ocean and added a DNS record to the hostingparty (Vimexx) where I have registered my domain. Now the issue is that my subdomains are not accessible any more. For example, a subdomain performancedashboard.markkruip.nl is redirecting to www.markkruip.nl. How can I fix it that performancedashboard.markkruip.nl is not redirecting? Would love to hear a solution!

Hi there,

Note that after making your DNS change, it could take up to 24/48 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the new DNS records.

Also if this is already the case, then make sure that you actually have separate virtual hosts for each website as described here:
