I currently have a domain at OVH (let's call it mysite.com) which is setup by OVH with a bunch of different CNAME for different subdomains like :
smtp.mysite.com CNAME mysite.com imap.mysite.com CNAME mysite.com ftp.mysite.com CNAME mysite.com ...
I have deleted all this and would like only
www ro redirect to my Heroku application.
I have then added both domains to my heroku app and got following redirections by Heroku :
www.mysite.com CNAME www.mysite.com.herokudns.com mysite.com ALIAS or ANAME mysite.com.herokudns.com
The first one works well. For the second I have deleted the
A reference to OVH server IP and tried to populate a
mysite.com.herokudns.com as indicated (no
ALIAS types available at OVH though) . But OVH does not allow this (as per RFC also).
Is there a solution to have root name redirected to Heroku anyway ?
(currently root address redirects to OVH mailer application !!?? which I am not sure where it comes from as all OVH
A types have been deleted. Seems it is picking up the
MX record by default ...)
