Root domain access without www


#1

Peplink Balance 380 5.1.8 build 1421 (no HA)

My domain name is foobar.com. The domain is configured to use ns1.foobar.com, ns2.foobar.com.

My NS / SOA Records in the Peplink are:
ns1 <-> ISP 1 IP Address
ns2 <-> ISP 2 IP Address

The CNAME records are empty.

If I enter foobar.com into a web browser, I get the page does not exist page.

If I enter www.foobar.com, mail.foobar.com, etc the correct page is displayed

I tried doing a wildcard for foobar.com but no dice.

I would like to be able to write domain.com in a web browser and have it go to my website. I have a couple of public IPs where I use the NAT Mappings pointed to the LAN hosts for the different webservices.


Does my config look correct? Do I need to configure a CNAME. I have other domains configured on the Peplink that I can use for testing without disrupting the production website.

If you want to have an A record for “foobar.com”, you need to use a dot “.” as Host in A Records.

Also, according to your screenshot, you are using 3500 as TTL in all A records. We suggest to use default TTL=5. If you are using 3500, the failover of DNS result will be changed after 3500 seconds after WAN down/up event.
