Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've bought a domain, say mydomain.com. I'd like to set up google apps to work with it. As such, I'd like to create subdomains like mail.mydomain.com, docs.mydomain.com, etc. To integrate it with google, I must add to all of them CNAME records to ghs.google.com. However my domain registrar says that they can create only one CNAME in my domain, for which they chose mail.mydomain.com. The rest of them, they say, I must create as A type records.

Are they being lazy, or is there some limitation here that I'm not aware of?

It is the first time I hear a story like that. –  lrosa Jun 9 '10 at 9:14
    
@Irosa - For the record - it's not a .com domain, that was just for example. It's a local country domain. And yeah, if they keep this up I'll start checking whether there isn't another registrar I can use. This is somewhat ridiculous. –  Vilx- Jun 9 '10 at 9:17

This is not a registrar issue, this is up to your DNS host. Change DNS host. –  Oskar Duveborn Jun 9 '10 at 9:35

There is no such limitation with DNS. There might be in some intermediate service they use.

They're the main registrar for the specific top level domain who maintain the zone. Other registrars go to them... –  Vilx- Jun 9 '10 at 9:24
