Wildcard subdomain not accessible
I’ve gone through the subdomain tutorial to try to get wildcard subdomains working for my domain. My Droplet’s DNS page looks like this. However, when I drop into a terminal session and try to look up any subdomain (e.g., “foo”), I get the following error:
$ host foo.hobolabs.com ns1.digitalocean.com Using domain server: Name: ns1.digitalocean.com Address: 18.104.22.168#53 Aliases: Host foo.hobolabs.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
When I try to ping it, I get something suspicious:
$ ping foo.hobolabs.com PING foo.hobolabs.com.com (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data. ^C --- foo.hobolabs.com.com ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 3022ms
The host tries to resolve as
foo.hobolabs.com.com. Does this give any clues as to what might be going on?
