Hi there,

I am trying to keep my website hosting in 1and1 and also have multiple dokku apps on my droplet.

Here is what i’ve done so far (please, understand “mydomain” is really my real domain name):

1.- I created a new Droplet to host my dokku apps (apps.mydomain.com)

2.- In 1and1 domain configuration for mydomain.com, i changed the dns servers to:

2.- In the Digitalocean control panel i added a new Domain (mydomain.com)
Added some A records:
@ [ip address of mydomain.com]
apps [ip address of the droplet (apps.mydomain.com)]
*.apps [ip address of the droplet (apps.mydomain.com) in an effort to be able to use app1.apps.mydomain.com and app2.apps.mydomain.com to access each of my dokku apps

And a CNAME record:
www mydomain.com.

Also, the NS records of the three digitalocean servers are let untouched:

But after two days i am still unable to reach the servers through ping. What am i doing wroing?

Thank you very much indeed

Depending on your registrar, changing your nameservers can take up to a few days. I haven’t personally used 1&1 as a registrar so I can’t speak to whether that is the case with them.

Without knowing the domain you’re having trouble with there isn’t much we can do in this community forum. The records you have shared should be correct. Please open a ticket with our support team so they can investigate if you are not comfortable sharing the domain name here.
