I'm trying to setup my zone file over here at easyDNS, and their technical support is just plain terrible, not knowledgeable at all.
is a wildcard record supposed to be an A
or CNAME record?
because I'm trying to point domain.com/~username
on the server, which I need to setup a wildcard record for, I just don't understand if its supposed to be an A or CNAME record? I tried both, and neither one is working, so I'm rather frustrated at the momment.
so far I've had 2 different supoort techs tell me differently, one said I had to create an A record, the other tech said I had to create a CNAME Alias record, I'm all confused now! I don't understand the difference between A and CNAME records at all
I'm thinking about switching DNS hosts, as I'm not even sure if my account supports wildcard records or not. Their support staff isn't telling me if I need to upgrade to another plan, or what, its rather aggrivating to try to talk to support techs who don't know whats going on.
I was with DynDNS for the longest time, until they decided to charge $29 a year for DNS hosting, which to me was completely rediculous, DNSmadeeasy wanted the same amount for wildcard record support, so I went with easyDNS for $19.95 yr for their DNS only plan, but their tech support is just terrible, not knowledgeable at all about setting up zone files.. and since DollarDNS is down, I have no clue at all who to go with now, my choices are becoming limited.
I basically have a test server I run from home, and basically need a nameserver provider, so I can point my home server to a domain instead of just an IP address, DNS hosting they call it.
