Are you running just the one site from Google Cloud? If you're using the default Apache config, on some distros it will set up one virtual host using the IP address as the name. Any other requests would be then diverted to that default virtual host, hence you end up at your IP address.

You're right that the trick is a wildcard DNS entry (indicated with asterisk) . Essentially it's a DNS entry that will match all subdomains that don't have a specific DNS entry. Then the "routing" happens on the application/website side. There is no actual DNS entry created for the subdomain, the reason that it finds a "match" when a DNS request is made, is ...

If you type in your domain, and it ends up on your IP, then that means it's being redirected. Look for a .htaccess file or a setting in Google cloud which is redirecting it. Perhaps Google cloud needs to be told what domain it will be serving for your IP? Use curl -I www.example.com to see the headers and redirects

The issue was that the secondary DNS server puck.nether.net was pointing to the old server's IP (at the time of the server migration https://puck.nether.net/dns/ was unavailable and apparently I forgot about it afterward): For what reason I did receive a warning from puck.nether.net after I contacted OVH about the issue, but I had not received any before. ...

The best approach for SEO is to replace the existing site at example.org. If any URLs have changed then you need to 301 redirect old to new in order to preserve as much rank as possible. (Although if the site was previous entirely Flash then I'm not sure what old URLs you would have?) The other domains example.com (where you developed the new site) and ...

First, it doesn't where the actual files are, 1 is 'real' the others are aliases. To the outside world they're all alike (unless someone digs up your DNS settings, but they can't do anything with that info). Then, I suggest you don't make two working domains. This would make you compete with yourself, which is kinda pointless. Choose one and stick to it. ...

The origin subdomain must point where the www subdomain used to point. So if you www used to be an A record to the IP address of your host, you need to move that over to origin. That will probably also mean that your server configuration will need to be updated. The VirtualHost directive on it will need to be changed from hosting www.example.com to ...

It's taken me a while to work this one out in the past. Dan is right in his comment above. To change the nameservers you can't do this from within the DNS Manager, you have to do it from within the Domain Manager. In case anyone else finds this question and is using their Premium DNS service as I have done for domain names not registered with GoDaddy ...

I found the solution, I had to use a Wildcard on the DNS A record for master.example.com: *.master.example.com The wildcard *. ensures any attempted connection goes to master.example.com. The registrar where the domain's DNS is currently managed didn't help and actually attempted to trick me into purchasing a subdomain (something my current provider does ...
