Subdomains not working with Digital Ocean DNS settings

  • Posted October 15, 2014

Hi, i moved a domain’s dns to my Digitalocean droplet. But i cannot see any subdomains on the domain. But when i use an external DNS pointing to my droplet, subdomains work.

NOTE: The normal domain works perfectly, it is just the subdomains that are not working

My a record is set to “@” Is this not correct

You should be entering a CNAME for each subdomain - in the format of subdomainname.primarydomainname.com.

First select “Add Record” then select CNAME - then add the subdomain with a . (dot) on the end and then in the second box enter the primary domain name and TLD - also with a dot on the end.

Without some more information, it’s hard to help you. Could you describe all the records that you’ve set? Are you using CNAMEs for the subdomains, A records? You might also want to check out:
