ANAME (aka ALIAS) isn't a real record type, it's more like a template/macro that expands to A & AAAA records copied from the target domain, refreshed every hour or so. Shopify want you to use ANAME or CNAME because they want to remain able to change their web servers' IP addresses without breaking the customers' domains. (With ANAME, they can just ...

You will need to perform the actions below: You will need to add the wildcard asterisk symbol as an A record under HOST to your domain DNS records. You need to have a web host that supports wildcard redirecting… Plesk and cPanel does support this feature but some hosts disable it… you need to ask. Wait... sometimes DNS changes can take an hour to 72 hours ...

Since you're using GMail for email, only by making changes to the MX DNS records will email delivery be impacted. So leave the MX records "as is". You shouldn't have to change your name servers. Just register the necessary A records for your website and you'll be fine.

Yes this is possible provided that your DNS daemon has the capabilities to provide the closest web server IP based on requesting client IP. Not a typical DNS daemon deployment that's for sure. Found two links on configuring BIND to accomplish what you're looking for: HOWTO Implement GeoDNS using BIND - scripts for configuring BIND to be GeoIP aware. ...

Google never forgets a site that it had once indexed. Googlebot will continue to try to visit your old sites for years. There is no way that I know of to get the bots to totally stop trying to visit the old URLs. If the sites are truly down, Google won't include them in the search index. You won't get real users visiting those sites from search ...

If you have access to those sites, add a hard 404-header. It won't get more obvious than that. The meta's (noindex and nofollow) still indicate that some content exists, you just don;t want it indexed (right now as far as they care). If those sites dont exists, use a htaccess and some CNAMES to do that same trick. (CNAME forum.site.com as site, and htaccess ...

You could set up a single page on the subdomain with a message to users that the subdomain is no longer active, and they should access www.example.com instead. Provide a link for users to click through to the main site, and include <meta name="robots" content="noindex"> in the header for search engines to know that it's no longer available. This ...

I found this on Heroku and now my domain works fine without the www. I am not sure what it does. In short: Root domains must be added in addition to any subdomains. The process for adding root domains is the same in the Heroku CLI: $ heroku domains:add example.com Adding example.com to example... done ! Configure your app's DNS provider to point to the ...

First check how they currently do. Titles, description, content etc. You want to keep that the same. Do not improve (unless obvious things) Check which urls are used. Do not change url structure! Or use the proper 301 redirects to make sure current page value is transferred to the new page. You're starting on a new website, think this through. This is the ...

The Bodis support team returned to me with the following: If you require that your email.example.com subdomain is available to you, you're going to need to omit * (asterisks) part of your zone file and only include www 61076.BODIS.COM When CNAME forwarding, typically only the third level subdomain (www.example.com) can be forwarded while the ...

Domain hosting has two parts: the DNS must point the domain to a server and the server must recognise the domain You should verify both. DNS points the domain to the right server: check using dig (or drill), nslookup or even simply ping or traceroute. All will take a domain name and let you know what the final resolved IP is. Check that it matches ...
