I have a web server at home. I bought a top level domain
mydomain.com and I want it to point to my server. I also have a duckdns domain
mydomain.duckdns.org. They say in their faq:
Q: I want to use my own Domain name with DuckDNS, can I do this?
A: Yes you can. At your NAME provider set your purchased record as a CNAME to your duckdns.org record. www.ilikeweasels.org CNAME weasels.duckdns.org
But that doesn't seem to do the trick. If there is an
A record then it doesn't allow me to setup a
CNAME. Then if I delete the
A and have the
CNAME only, then it I get this:
M-PRIF -E- [mydomain.com] Cannot get domain data (-nameserverIP- -nameservername-)
UPDATE: So I could manage to set it up for
www.mydomain.com, but not for
UPDATE2: I've just read this one Why can't a CNAME record be used at the apex (aka root) of a domain? and It seems I shouldn't create a
CNAME record for the root domain. So the question here is whether there is any workaround?
