I’ve been reading the Wiki for Custom DNS records.
I am going to be running (at home) a SIP/VoIP server and want to use voip.mydomainname.com
Now, I think what the Wiki is telling me is to not add voip.mydomainname.com as a sub-domain with hosting (round robin or something?) but instead, when I go to add a custom A record for the domain, to specify voip in the ‘Name’ area of “Add a custom DNS record to mydomainname.com:” right?
Perhaps this will be better than creating a sub-domain in the Domains part of the panel, and then changing the DNS details to that of my server running at home?
I don’t know which is better. I was thinking that by not adding it as a sub-domain in the panel, anyone trying to call me on voip.mydomainname.com won’t first have the call protocol forwards to port 80 and instead it will all just be redirected to my home server.
Help greatly appreciated.
