  • DNS - Use Cnames or Wildcards ?

    Hello,

    I was wandering which is the best option to choose working with DNS and my website:

    Cnames or Wildcards (* will point to the website IP)

    Thanks,

      Wildcards can be good if you have multiple subdomains and want to capture all possible misspellings. Sometimes wildcards can cause issues such as with Outlook Anywhere which actually relies on a DNS resolution failure to then try SRV records. Actually, that's less of a problem with wildcards and more of a problem with Microsoft depending on a failure process that isn't guaranteed, but I digress.

      Were you thinking of CNAME'ing some common subdomains or misspellings of subdomains?
