Wildcard DNS


#1

I am on the code monster plan. Does dreamhost have wildcard DNS enabled? I want to run a script that will assign subdomains for registered members. Thanks!

No, wildcard DNS is not supported.


If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.

You can probably get it added if you write support. It’s not hard to do, but has to be done manually. (note to the OP - there are some references to this if you search for “wildcard dns” in the archives of this board).

However, if it’s pointing to a dh-hosted domain / subdomain, it will have to be on a unique IP - otherwise the virtualhost won’t be configured for that subdomain - and there’s no way to add wildcard virtualhosts through the DH system AFAIK (though I think it’s technically possible to do).
