Wildcard CNAME not working?
I have set up my DNS and all appeared to be working fine, I have 2 sites hosted on my server using virtual hosts and going to either http://domain1.com or http://domain2.com works. However going to http://www.domain1.com or http://www.domain2.com does not. I have set up both a wildcard and www CNAME in the hopes of fixing it but it still doesn’t work.
My droplet is running CentOS 6 and apache, I have copy/pasted the info i have on the dns control panel below with the ip/domains removed. Any help or pointers to where I’m going wrong would be great!
