    I have created a Cname record in ISPCONFIG3 dns like this in test domain

    record type CName
    Name - cdn
    data -

    but when querying dns record using dig, no CName record is showing up for the testdomain.

    I have used all combinations, but none worked.

    dig any
    dig cname

    dig @localhost any
    dig @localhost cname

    please note that I am getting answers for other records like A records, mx records, txt records. etc.

    Please help I must be missing something.

    I am really sorry.
    The problem was my quering the DNS.

    instead of querying I should have queried to get the correct answer.
