I created a new website using another server.

Pointed the @ record to my new server. However, the result is:

www.domain.com points to old server domain.com (without www) points to new server

I checked that *.domain.com is pointed to my old server.

If a point *.domain.com to my new server does other records like mail MX records become broken?

Or, is there any way to point www.domain.com to my new server.

only if it's a CNAME

Or, is there any way to point www.domain.com to my new server.

that's what I would do, either cname www to @ or add a second A record.

  • the domain holder doesn't allow cname www to @ or * to any ip. It looks like I have to migrate my domain to another server(which I don't want to) and reconfigure all the records. – user2271779 Feb 7 '17 at 19:27
  • so www to the same IP as @ – Jacob Evans Feb 7 '17 at 19:30
  • It worked. Thank You. www to the same ip is @. some domain holders allow www to @, others allow www to ip – user2271779 Feb 9 '17 at 5:48

If I point *.example.com to my new server do other records like mail MX records become broken?

A wildcard record is only applied when a more specific record does not exist, so adding it won't impact any of your already existing DNS records and you can always override a wildcard if you need to.

  • When I try to edit *.domain.com the system doesn't allow me to do so. Is there any other way? For example creating a CNAME like below: from www to domain.com does it work? I don't want to mess up anything :) – user2271779 Feb 7 '17 at 15:45
