DNS Entry configuration for Co-Domains

    I have several Co-domains installed on a single ISP site sd-1494.dedibox.fr

    Their DNS configuration is identical.

    However, one Co-domain has a DNS problem. Users outside the hosting ISP periodically cannot access the domain without typing "www." as a prefix, some domain.net does not work, whereas www.domain.net does work!

    Under ISP Manager > vihinfo.net > Co-Domain > Domains: papamamanbebe.net www papamamanbebe.net lemegalodon.net www lemegalodon.net survivreausida.net www survivreausida.net

    Under DNS Manger > DNS Entry > Records for papamamanbee.net (example):
    A Record Hostname www Hostname mail

    mail.papamamanbebe.net Hostname: www
    sd-1494.dedibox.fr Hostname: mail

    When I try to make changes (like remove the Hostname www from MX record mail.papamamanbebe.net) I get the following error message: This or a similar MX Record does already exist in this zone.

    My questions:
    - When I create a Co-Domain under ISP Site, should I also add Hostname www in addition to the domain on its own?
    - When I add a New Master under DNS Manager, what is the correct configuration for a Co-Domain?

    That depends on whether you want the www to point to the same web. Normally yes.

    If it's a completely different domain you must create a new zone for it. If it's just a subdomain of an existing domain, you just add an A record for the subdomain to the domain's existing zone.
