    Hello i have some problems with my dns and subdomains.

    for example:

    I want a subdomain called prism,
    so what i did in the dns =

    A : prism | IP

    That did'nt work.

    After that i tried

    CNAME : prism | domain.tld

    That did'nt work neither?

    What am i doing wrong??

    Please show screenshots.

    With DNS it's important to know when to use a "." at the end and when not.


    The "." is needed if you give the fully qualified domain name. You can see that with the wildcard entry (* and the "" entries.

    However, the third subdomain is only the subdomain name not not a fqdn. So it only has the subdomain name without "." at the end: "anime"

    You should check the dot "." cuz many people dont care too much about it but it's very important.
