Unable to map D.O domain name to D.O ipaddress & do forwarding. Stuck after creation. Want to create domainName to avoid ip in Namecheap.
About me: Fellow Developers., I am application developer and very much new to application domain configuration
Expection: I would like to have a domain name created in Digital Ocean which could be used in Namecheap to forward any requests to that domain name to Digital Ocean domain name.
Expected behaviour Eg; www.DomainNameatNameCheap.com -> DomainNameatDigitaLOcean.com-> Ipaddres at digital ocean.
Current behaviour : DomainNameatDigitaLOcean.com-> Ipaddres at digital ocean. Xxxxxxxxxxx ( not working)
www.DomainNameatNameCheap.com -> DomainNameatDigitaLOcean.com Xxxxxxxxxxx ( not working)
www.DomainNameAtNameCheap.com -> IpAdddress at digital ocean (works)
.I don’t know what i am missing but i tried following everything in here https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/an-introduction-to-digitalocean-dns . After configuration, this is how it looks.
Type . Hostname value TTL(Seconds)
CNAME . *.tcfte01.prod . tcfte01.prod . 43200
CNAME . www.tcfte01.prod . tcfte01.prod . 43200
A tcfte01.prod 192.168.1.11(sample) . 3600
NS tcfte01.prod ns1.digitalocean.com 1800
NS tcfte01.prod ns2.digitalocean.com 1800
NS tcfte01.prod ns3.digitalocean.com 1800
Please provide a direction or solution, i’ve been stuck on this problem because i need to perform reverse proxying code if this gets enabled. This expectation not being resolving has been blocking the launch of my application. Thank you. Sincerely,
