Hosting on galaxy


#1

Hi

I’m shifting my main app from DO to Galaxy.

However, I also have other subdomains eg. wordpress hosted on digitalocean.

digitalocean requires domain providers to use a custom DNS with their own nameservers.

how do i configure things such that app.mydomain.com will point to the the galaxy server while keeping my other subdomains (eg. blog.mydomain.com)

anyone with experience?

DigitalOcean doesn’t force the use of their nameservers; they just recommend it for convenience (so you can manage both your domains and servers through their admin). You can keep your DNS providers default nameservers in place, and just use an A record pointing back to blog.mydomain.com at DigitalOcean, along with a CNAME record pointing app.mydomain.com to galaxy-ingress.meteor.com / eu-west-1.galaxy-ingress.meteor.com.
