You can check if your DNS is configured correctly by using the dig command to query the DNS records.
You can check if your DNS is configured correctly by using the dig command to query the DNS records. For example, you can look up the A records for your domain to ensure they are pointing to the correct IP addresses. You can check for three specific A-Records for the domain example.xyz with the IPs that are listed in the Tenant domain overview in the wildcloud Console. Additionally, make sure there are no AAAA records for the domain. You can also use a web variant of dig to perform this check. If the DNS is set up correctly, it should return the A-records under the tab A-records or on the tab ANY when using dig. If your domain is setup as a CNAME rather than using A-records, this works similarly: the dig command for the CNAME record should return the public wildcloud endpoint for the specific cluster, either public.eu1.wpcs.io or public.us1.wpcs.io.
To use a web variant of dig to check your DNS configuration, follow these steps:
- Go to a web-based DNS lookup tool such as Google's Dig tool or any other online DNS record checker.
- Enter your domain name in the provided search field.
- Select the type of DNS record you want to check, such as A, CNAME, or ANY.
- Click on the lookup or search button to perform the DNS query.
- Review the results to see if the DNS records are pointing to the correct IP addresses or CNAME values.
